    ... and we were completely amazed and dazzled. We hope the video gives you a glimpse of the wonder we were lucky enough to experience. As previously mentioned there was a whole lot of wetsuit and other snorkelling paraphernalia; by the time we were fully kitted out it was only our lips and our hands that were in the open sea. It should come as no surprise then that L managed to get stung by a jellyfish, on her hand, the only skin surface exposed. When we slid out of ...

One or two dolphins quickly turned into a whole pod and we had about 50 little dusky dolphins swimming round us. Even though I swam with them in Florida, I was quite young and it was in a touristy way so this is why I really wanted to do it again and I can honestly say it was probably one of the best things I've ever done.

    Finally back doing something after spending most of sep oct nov working. Jobs and friends down here have been great to me, but now im spending my first time in the south island to see whas what. I started in Kaikoura, vouching to stay out of the next show, and I couldn't be happier.

    First thanks to Paul and Poppy, I got to go see the seal pups outside of kaikoura, which was amazing becaus I hadn't even seen seals yet! But watching the pups play and bite in ...
