... to the South Island so I took some sea sickness tablets this time round and lucky I did. I cant even imagine how ill I would have been if I hadnt. I literally spent an hour with my head on the table trying to survive. Everyone was really glad to be back on dry land and a bit closer to home. There was time in the bus for one last rendition of our trip theme song before arriving at the hostel. Once the final room pairings were sorted, it was time ...

Off to the Whaleway station for a spot of morning whale watching and soon after departing we came across a sperm whale as they surface for 5-10 minutes to take oxygen in. He was a big boy being bigger than our 30 foot boat and was around 6 foot wide. Water was spurting out his blowhole and as he was preparing to descend, he arched his back before lifting his tail fin into the air and disappeared to the depths. We got some great money shots, Ian being in ...
