There's some incredible photography opportunities …

Kaikoura is very picturesque and is quite possibly the most beautiful location in the world to enjoy being close to a diverse range of marine and birdlife.

Photography opportunities are everywhere and are guaranteed to be outstanding because of the natural landscapes surrounding you on every side.  The majestic Seaward Kaikoura Mountains form the backdrop to the foreground of the Pacific Ocean, standing tall as if guarding Kaikoura’s very own stunning slice of paradise.  In winter the snow clad mountains ensure the view is even more breathtaking crisply defining the majestic peaks and ridges which tower above the town.

The dusky dolphins which are regarded as the acrobats of the sea will not disappoint.  With an entertaining spectacle of leaps, somersaults, back flips, high dives and continuous sequences of tail slapping antics, the opportunity to capture your own exquisite memories is a certainty.
