      ... sail, they said it could be between a 5 and 45 minutes journey to find the dolphins! Luckily they were found after about 15 minutes, they said as it was dark they would do things backwards and let everyone take photos first, then the swimmers could go in when it got lighter.
      So we got to see loads of Dusky Dolphins chasing after the boat and riding the bow. Managed to get some video of them on the GoPro as the cameras had long lenses on. Saw a few of the dolphins ...

      ... timed the flight perfectly. We went out a couple miles at about 1000 feet in a 4 seater with just us and the pilot. He circled for only a few minutes when a male sperm whale breached and just hung out next to the whale sightseeing boat for 10 minutes. They dive for about 40 minutes and come up for air for about 10. It was a great way to see a whale. Then he dived and we went out farther in the plane to look for ...

      ... away from us and they were not shy. We weren't allowed to touch them but I did take my camera and managed to get some good shots underwater too. 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. We spent ...

      ... you can go and visit an enclosure of an animal and fail to see them?! Alastair and I were so disappointed. When we told Josie (Who actually chose not to see a kiwi unlike us) she laughed. However the owner guaranteed us free entry the following morning... (To be continued). We then went and had dinner on the sea front, walking along the stunning beach. This beach was covered with driftwood art including a huge double bed (complete with fairy lights), literally ...

      Lots of wildlife

      ... sure we both enjoyed ourselves. We saw Little Blue Penguins, a couple of sharks, a seal or two, four types of Albatross and a pod of about 20 Dusky Dolphins and Courtney caught 5 or 6 fish as well.

      The Albatross were hysterically funny to watch; they look so majestic in flight but on the water they look a lot like the extinct Dodo. When you throw them fish they lift up out of the water and run across the top - ...
