Set on South Island’s rugged eastern coast, Kaikoura is a charming town caught between the Seaward Kaikoura Range and the Pacific Ocean. Best known for its sealife and coastal landscape, Kaikoura’s highlights revolve around the ocean and its inhabitants, with whale and dolphin watching aboard state of the art catamarans, bird watching and splashing around with the playful New Zealand fur seals.
When days in Kaikoura are spent in or on the water, you’re sure to build up an appetite and the abundant produce of the region makes eating out a delight, with fresh seafood and superb New Zealand wines. When even the name hints at this culinary heritage - ‘kai’ meaning ‘food’ and ‘koura’ meaning ‘crayfish’ - you know you’re in the right place!
