The region’s coastal waters are home to an amazing array of marine mammals and birdlife making it the perfect destination for marine experiences all year round.

Perhaps the most famous residents are the sperm whales who share this part of the ocean with dusky dolphins, fur seals and albatross amongst others. Species such as the rare Hector’s dolphins, humpback whales and orca visit throughout the year. View marine life from a boat, or get even closer by swimming with seals or dolphins. Go fishing and catch your own dinner. Try out some of the excellent diving sites and surf breaks or explore the coast by kayak.
