Photos: Walking Around Kaikoura

Monday, 15 Apr 2019 | Photo Gallery

The day after our whale watch, we walked around the Kaikoura peninsula before driving back to Nelson. It was a great opportunity to stretch our legs and explore new territory before the 4-hour trip to Nelson.

This was our 3rd trip to New Zealand and we've gone to Kaikoura each time to watch whales. This trip didn't disappoint although the seas were a bit rough at time.

We definitely wanted so spend more time on the water during this trip to New Zealand. What better way to tick that box than to have a sailing adventure in Abel Tasman National Park.

Thursday, 4 Apr 2019 | Photo Gallery

We missed Huka Falls on our previous trips, so we made sure to stop by this time. However, the 'falls' were pedestrian -- we think the big draw for them is the jet boat trip through the narrow channel.
