... our first whale resurface before he disappeared again and then went back to the humpback whale. After a quick dash to look at some New Zealand fur seals basking on a rock and generally ignoring the albatrosses swooping around we returned to port. A great day.

Around the table were a group of Canadians, some Dutch and a German girl. ...
