We headed off over water fairly close to shore and saw dolphins, schools of fish and various birdlife. Whales had been scarce the previous few days but we weren't bothered by this. Instead of going further out to sea, we decided to fly over to the mountains and land on snow. We had a beautiful view over Mount Fyffe to the Pacific Ocean and our 4-year-old son couldn’t have been happier throwing snow balls at mum and dad. Dan and the team at South Pacific Whales are friendly and professional and we had an awesome experience.

Amazing way to not only see whales but also the beauty of the nature around. Dan was an amazing pilot and an entertaining guide. We saw two whales and had a wonderful time!

Seeing whales was one of the main reasons we went to Kaikoura. Amazing time in the air,. We flew around the sperm whale. With the lower morning light we were even able to see the Sperm whale's pectoral fins, and the size of the head, something missed from the boats. A great pilot, he allowed other aircraft to come in but managed the timing to have us directly over the whale when it surfaced and again when it dived.

The pilot was so kind with us. We saw one whale, and was such an exciting experience. The scenery is stunning. Go for it

Wow. Dan, Rachael & Yolanda were the loveliest staff but I'm sorry guys, those 3 Blue Whales stole the show. I've never been so close to such a mejesric creature. Watching these whales feed was one of the coolest things I've ever seen. We even got a cheeky smile as one bobbed it's head out of the water. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
