Kaikoura on the East coast of the South Island is an incredible place where huge quantities of cetaceans and birds can be seen. Very professional sea operators can be booked to carefully approach Sperm Whales, Whales, Dolphins, Seals, Albatros in compliance with environmental rules. The whole Kaikoura's coast is controlled by scientists in shelters placed along the steep slopes of the mountain. Whole day they observe animals behaviors related to human activities and suggest to adapt local practice rules for a better biodiversity protection. Observations can also be done from earth.
