... surface to recover. Based on sightings earlier in the day, we only had a short time to make it several miles out to where the whales were likely to surface. Luckily for us, a gigantic male called Tiaki was still blowing clouds of water droplets when we arrived. Having been sat down inside the sea cat, there was a barely-civil rush by the people on the trip to get outside. Tiaki is probably the most dominant male in the area. We could see the top of his front two thirds, ...

Day 175 We had little idea of the time at any point this morning. The sun rose behind a layer of mist and cloud so the first of its light we saw was refected off the mighty wrinkled mountains a few kilometres behind the campsite.

Throughout the rest of the afternoon we were lucky enough to see two pods of dusky dolphins which were playing and chasing around the boat and another sperm whale. Before we headed back we motored over to a seal breeding area where there were loads of seals and their pups playing in rock ...

... draws at the end of the bed. Exactly how it would've been too. Strange one. Spent the morning driving before hitting our stop for the next 24 hours or so. Kaikoura. Simon showed us around town and then it was on to the afternoons activity. We first had lunch at the 2nd best fish and chip shop in NZ and although I didn't actually have fish it was still good. I ordered a hot dog as I was really in the mood for one but when it came out it was ...
