Kaikoura Albatross Encounter

Albatross Encounter

Do you know how many varieties of Albatross we have in Kaikoura? Well I’m not telling as you will have to come and see these magnificent sea birds for yourself. The Albatross come so close to the boat you can almost reach out and touch them.

Most of the albatross seen in Kaikoura have travelled thousands of kilometres to get here. Some of the albatross seen in the area have bands on their legs and these bands have been put on while the birds are on their nesting sites on Sub Antarctic Islands.

One of the reasons for such a large number of different types of seabirds in our area is the presence of a deepwater trench (the Kaikoura Canyon), close inshore and upwellings of cold nutrient rich water over the shallower coastal waters which sustains a vibrant food chain supporting a large variety of fish species, marine mamals and seabirds.

Booking at the Admiral Creighton B&B Accommodation ensures you get to do the best tours at the best price.
