Ohau Point Seal Colony

Just out of Kaikoura (on the east coast of the South Island) you'll find Ohau Point Seal Colony, a great spot to pull over and catch a glimpse of seals frolicking around on the rocks. It's a great sight to see seals basking in the sun (if you get lucky with the weather) while the Pacific Ocean is crashing on the surrounding rocks. If you are heading North toward Picton, take care as you will be pulling over to the right hand side of the road and it can get a little tricky if there's a lot of traffic and the pull off area is full. About 3kms south of Ohau Point you might be lucky and get to see one of the South Island's best surf spots in action, when the conditions are right you'll be able to see some amazing surf action, right from the comfort of your camper!
