These falls are one of the secrets of New Zealand. They are about 30k north of Kaikoura .

The reason they are so special is that they are a secret creche for seal pups , every day pups come to these hidden falls and play , whilst mum and dad go fishing in the sea.

In the aqua plunge pool were 5 seal cubs dashing and jumping in and out of the water , they have not shown on the photo due to the timed exposure achieved with a ND filter.

This is a must see location on any visit to the south island.
