Experience the natural beauty of Kaikoura with this Overview Tour. Our town boasts a dramatic seaside setting with startling contrasts. Immediately inland lies the Seaward Kaikoura Range, soaring to 2,600 meters (8,500 feet), while the Pacific Ocean plunges to great depths just off the coastline.
1 or 2 Hour Tours daily (10.30am & 1.30pm)
On this introductory 2 hour tour, you’ll visit a fragrant lavender farm that grows more than 45 varieties of lavender. Bring home a delicately scented remembrance of Kaikoura in the farm’s gift shop. Next, enjoy a short, easy bush walk along the lovely Ohau stream / Waterfall, simply stunning (seal pups seasonal). Then a visit to Ohau Point will have you looking out across a large fur seal colony. Admire the magnificent coastal views as we drive back to Kaikoura to view the historic Whaler’s Cottage - Fyffe House. A cottage built from native timber atop a foundation of whale vertebrae, before stopping at our spectacular peninsula lookout point to view panoramas of the sea and adjacent mountains, sometimes capped with snow. Photo opportunities abound.
Our SHUTTLE SERVICE is also available to any of the above, including all accommodation, Whale Watching, Dolphin Encounter, Peninsula Seal Colony, Maori Leap Caves, The Farm Park and all Walking Tracks.
