    ... over 500m away however when our third sighting decided rest time was over and waved goodbye with his tale from the distance. As a result the engine was slowed and we headed back in land hoping to spot a little Hector Dolphins. We saw a couple but they were very nippy and quite shy so we only just glimpsed them.
