The Whale watch office is at the Kaikoura Railway Stn approx. 2.8km to the north of the Panorama Motel. Think you have to check into the Whale Watch office before your tour starts and they run a transfer bus from there to the South Bay jetty where the boats leave from. South Bay is approx. 4.5km to the south (over the hill) from the Panorama Motel. Whale watch is fantastic but just as amazing is the swimming with the Dolphins!
