Well it worked. All of you who crossed your fingers brought us the most wonderful weather. NOT A CLOUD IN THE SKY. Our trip to find the whales left the harbour at 1115am. The boat is a catamaran with an upper and lower deck. The lower is enclosed with aircraft style seats and you must be seated while the boat is on the move. It can travel at up to 35knots but it's usual speed is 25. This is still fast in a boat. We cruised to the first area ...

... and jumps. There were also 2 nosey seals had had popped up, but were scared off by the dolphins.

It's a sprawling hostel that probably used to be a motel, except is has 3 huge kitchens, lots of chill space, a pool, and a jacuzzi. We skipped out on the pool ...

... hour in the water playing with them before we were called back on the boat. We then had the chance to take some pictures of them socialising meaning playing around and doing tricks. Once we got out the water it seemed like the rest of the pod showed up and one of the guides said there was roughly 200 around us. Some swimming right next to the boat, some darting around. Then the acrobatics began. Backflips came out, front flips, belly flops, you name it. I can't quite remember ...

Lots of wildlife

... the most awkward looking manoeover although quite effective. The Dolphins were mating so there was lots of jumping and diving and general showing off which was great fun to watch. Simon found a big group and we watched them for ages before heading back to shore.

On Tuesday we caught a bus to Christchurch in the afternoon but before doing that we took a whale watching flight in a small 8 seat plane. These ...
