The Ohau Stream Walk is unsafe due to earthquake damage and is closed until further notice.


Seals can be viewed from the roadside car park Ohau Point, located on the ocean side of SH1 just north of Ohau Stream. Alternatively, you can view seals at Kaikōura Peninsula, just south of the township. This is a short walk around the shoreline from Point Kean car park.

Seals can also be seen from parts of the Kaikōura Peninsula Walkway.
