About Us

Hi, My name is Levi O'Connor,

I am so grateful to be able to show people my back yard where I have grown up surfing, fishing, and diving as a job. My family and I, including 3 younger brothers, moved to Kaikoura from Riverton in the deep south over 20 years ago. My parents have a local business, Pacific Jewels, this shop is a must-see, perfect for gifts and souvenirs. I spend most days in the water, having been a sponsored surfer from the age of 13. In 2015 I became the South Island Open surfing champion and still surf most days around the Kaikoura coast. The ocean is where I belong and feel safe and am able to unwind. I look forward to meeting you and will try my best to make your tour one remember. See you soon, Levi.
