Coastal Pacific *Bus Replacement* 19th April to 23rd April 

We regret to inform you that the Coastal Pacific Train service between 19th and 23rd April 2014 will be replaced by a bus service. This service change is due to landslips caused by the adverse weather conditions which have made the coastal rail track impassable.  Passengers wishing to cancel will receive a full refund. Please contact or 0800 250 000 from 9am to 5pm for questions about this service change. Thank you.

Whale watching and much more

Kaikoura is a popular stop off for passengers who want to immerse themselves in the sheer drama and beauty of this very special meeting place of majestic alpine scenery, beautiful rugged coastline, Maori culture and amazing ocean wildlife.

While whale watching is a big draw card, visitors soon discover that along with plenty of water activities, there’s a lot to do onshore as well, from beautiful shoreline walks to view wildlife, multi-day walks in the nearby mountains, to horse trekking, quad biking, golf and more.
