Get up close and personal with the largest wingspan on the planet!
Kaikoura is known as the albatross capital of the world and is one, if not the best place to see these magnificent birds!
Blessed with an abundance of pelagic and marine wildlife, up to twelve different species of albatross can be seen along this spectacular coastline. An expert local guide will help you identify the various species and ensure you have a trip to remember!
Encounter Kaikoura is a friendly and enthusiastic business dedicated to providing our customers with exceptional experiences!
Temporary note: Our operating base is currently closed for earthquake repairs and as a result we currently aren’t able to operate a regular schedule for our Albatross Encounter Tours (we are planning to recommence a 9am departure on a daily schedule by Spring 2020). Meanwhile, we are running tours on demand and when tours are scheduled posting deals here. If you don’t see the date you are wanting get in touch and we will see what we can do!
