Whale watched off Kaikoura

There were concerns that whales might have been frightened off by the earthquakes, but Whale Watch Kaikoura have been out to sea to check and have spotted a sperm whale.

Today 6 days after the 120sec that changed our lives we decided to journey off the Kaikoura coast and look for our taonga and whanau the Tohora, im sure you can appreciate the huge excitement when we found him. What an amazing sight to see that our Tohora is still with us.

We know Hector Dolphins and Dusky Dolphins have also been sighted along with huge numbers of albatross and other pelagic seabirds, our canyon is still full of life!!!

It could be a long time before many tourists are out off Kaikoura again but at least there’s still whales there.

    120 seconds…I bet that they seemed like ‘dog seconds’.

      I may be reading too much into this, but if the whales et al are coming back, might this mean that the earthquakes aren’t ? I do believe that animals can be aware of them before people are, as the animals haven’t the distractions that we have !

        They just had a 5, so I guess your theory is wrong – add it to you other wrong theories – start a new book!

          Change the record, the needle’s stuck on that one.

          Don’t try so hard to be clever, you fail every time.As Pope said ‘You beat your pate*, and fancy wit will come/Knock as you will, there’s nobody at home.’ He must have said it of one of your ancestors. Your attempts at finding flaws in everything I say show your own foolishness and lack of comprehension skills-you are way out of your depth, I fear. Non compos mentis, in other words. Mens insana in corpore insano.Your words are ‘a tale told by an idiot/Full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.’ You haven’t brains enough to make a fool of yourself-but you keep trying.

          It was a question, not a theory. I said MIGHT THIS MEAN, not IT DOES mean. If you don’t know what these words mean, may I suggest that you buy a dictionary ? It would be an investment if it stopped you making an ass of yourself as often as you do.

          * pate-rhymes with plate-old word for head.
