Kaikoura Cruise Seminar

Kaikoura was buzzing on the day of the seminar with tourists eager for the full Whale Watch and Dolphin Encounter experience. The Cruise Seminar at Dolphin Encounters’ office and café, was well attended too with speakers from Christchurch Airport, Tourism New Zealand and Service IQ. Kevin O’Sullivan gave a presentation on the current and future cruise benefits for Kaikoura and nationally (ably assisted by Caroline Blanchfield from Christchurch).

The new marina is an exciting development for Kaikoura – especially the jetty which will be used for cruise ship tenders. The first cruise ship scheduled to visit is the Seabourn Encore which will arrive on 15 December.
