Whale watching in Kaikoura.
Good location. Not too far to walk from the Intercity bus. A fair walk to the Kaikoura Whale Watching pick up, which is why we were there.(We didn’t see any, by the way, despite the crew of the boat trying really hard. Surprisingly, the company gives a refund of 80% if you don’t see a whale). Plenty of places to eat and drink in Kaikoura. The guy on reception was pleasant, helpful and friendly. Overall, a good, inexpensive stay.
