This tour combines whale watching with Hapuku Kitchen where the owner & chef Fiona Read will greet you and the magic begins. Fiona will show you where she forages creating focused, uncomplicated yet delicious dishes made from her gardens and local producers. Relax and enjoy the feast you've created with a glass of wine.
The food produced here supports a diverse variety of marine life including many species of whales that migrate through the area such as humpback, southern right whales, blue whales, and of course the mighty sperm whale: the world's largest toothed whale.
Once you have spent time viewing the wild marine life, relax and enjoy the scenic flight along the rugged coastline of Kaikōura to the world class Hapuku Kitchen.
At its heart, Hapuku Kitchen is focused on reconnecting the kitchen to the land and sea, celebrating the abundant larder nature has to offer - taking inspiration from the wild Kaikōura landscape.
The Hapuku Kitchen team will invite you into their stunning home, located between the soaring peaks of the Kaikōura mountains and the wild Pacific coast of Aotearoa New Zealand, for a culinary adventure that celebrates the season.
After the tour, relax and enjoy a seasonal long lunch featuring the very best ingredients caught & foraged from the region.
A shuttle will take you back to your accommodation.
