      ... a lot to choose from but I was hoping that she would be able to join a tour by herself since I don't fish. We weren't able to do this but Simon Melville from Kaikoura Marine Tours offered a charter that combined fishing with wildlife watching for the two of us.

      This trip was BRILLIANT. Simon was very nice, really knew his environment and the wildlife in it and was terrific showing Courtney what to do ...

      A 9.5 for the dancing dusky dolphins

      A travel blog entry by lou-and-ian on Jan 06, 2015

      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 ...

We drive back to the carriage really looking forward to our crayfish lunch and we weren't disappointed, on our arrival ...

      ... whale coming up ahead! The boat starts racing along and I'm near to an exit so as soon as it stops I run out to the deck and see this amazing whale surfacing for air. He stayed on the surface for around 10 minutes before arching his back, kicking up his big whale tail and diving back down to the bottom of the ocean. When the tale came up it was totally breathtaking like something you only ever imagine to see on films. ...

      ... As we were travelling we could see some dolphins swimming beside us. They was so many of them and they were all jumping up out of the sea. The guide told us that these type of dolphins were dusky dolphins and how they are known for their acrobatics. The captain stopped the engine and let us all go outside to watch them. They were everywhere, there was so many of them! They were swimming under and next to our boat and then would jump out ...
