Whale watching is a thrilling tourist activity. The chance to see these magnificent creatures of the sea is not to be missed. Whale watching trips are available in a surprising number of places around the world because whales are migratory creatures and many of them travel great distances between their feeding and breeding grounds. Here’s my 10 Top Destinations to go Whale Watching:
1. Kaikoura, New Zealand
One of the best places to see whales is New Zealand’s South Island. Kaikoura is a world-renowned spot for whale watching because large numbers are attracted here. The deep water where warm and cold currents mix creates a wealth of nutrients close to the surface and whales come to feed. Sperm whales are the most common sight here and also, the world’s rarest dolphin, Hector’s Dolphin, is only found here.
