Albatross Encounter brings you up close to a diverse array of seabirds including albatross, petrels, shearwaters, shags, terns and gulls. These species all occur naturally within a close proximity of the Kaikoura Peninsula. Kaikoura's marine environment is home to more seabird species in a small area than anywhere else in the New Zealand.
This boat based tour can take you just 15 minutes from the coast before you start to encounter a diverse range of seabirds. Our experienced guides on board are able to assist with identification of the birds and provide an educational and memorable commentary.
