The service provided by Athena was excellent. However I made the mistake of not claiming our loyalty reward gift card when paying final invoice and when we enquired later were told it was too late to claim. My mistake I know, but a refund would have been nice. Maybe a reminder on the final invoice to claim loyalty reward gift cards would help."

The seaside settlement of Kaikoura, situated midway between Christchurch and Picton on the rugged east coast of New Zealand's South Island, is overlooked by majestic mountains in the north reaching 2600m, which are snow-capped for many months of the year. Kaikoura is mostly settled on a peninsula that drops off sharply to the 3000 m deep Hikurangi Trench. The resulting upwelling currents bring an abundance of marine life that attracts whales, hence the town’s history as a whaling centre. This unique combination of ocean and mountains offers stunning coastal alpine scenery. An earthquake in 2016 raised the sea level in the area by two metres.

There are several points of historical interest. The first whaling station in the area was built in 1842, just behind Fyffe house, the oldest house in Kaikoura. There are several other remains of interest, including the sea wall, the oldest surviving concrete structure in the country, the foundations of the Pier hotel, the fireplace and concrete step of the Bonded Warehouse built in 1885, fascinating whale bone fence posts as well as whale bone grave markers. Kaikoura is an accessible place to observe open ocean seabirds such as albatrosses, petrels and shearwaters.

This is a great place to eat crayfish (in the Maori language kai means food, koura means crayfish). Kaikoura's special talent is marine mammal encounters – whales, fur seals and dolphins live permanently in the coastal waters. Whale watching trips leave the town several times a day, swim with the dolphins or visit the local seal colony which is always entertaining. A great variety of tours, including four wheel drive trips or air flights are available, or you can simply relax at the numerous cafes, restaurants and shops.
