Kaikoura is described as a town close to the edge as it sits on one of the deepest underwater canyons on earth. It’s alive with more sea creatures than you’ve ever seen - huge pods of wild dolphins roam the bay, whales toss and turn, and the mighty albatross soars. If everyone on earth knew Kaikoura existed, you’d never get into town (and they’d put SeaWorld out of business).
