We have to leave Wellington at the crack of dawn to drop off the hire car and take the ferry over to the South Island. I had assumed that it would be like taking the ferry over to the Isle of Wight, but it is much, much further between the islands. The journey takes just over 3 hours.

The best bit ofcourse though... Seals! Seals seals and more seals. They were so closer we could touch (not that we dared to). We saw babies and fully grown seals and the noise they make is so so strange. We got some good pictures ...
