      What a busy last few days we have had! We started our kiwi experience on Friday 14th February and have already seen so much! Our first driver, Scottie, was a little crazy! We got picked up bright and early and drove down to Kaikoura, town famous for whale and dolphin watching. As we are returning here we thought we would get people's feedback on …

      ... we made our way back to the hostel, which was relatively normal!! Jackson picked us up and took us to Whale Watch Kaikoura. We waited inside the shop until we told to watch the health and safety video. When we had been briefed we were escorted onto a bus which took us to a small harbour about 15 minutes away.

      ... In fact it is the largest toothed predator on planet earth. Today we saw a Sperm Whale close up. However, with the exception of one pic of the tail as it dived down all our pictures just show a log like thing in the sea.

      The whale tour was really good, the staff were both informative and entertaining to fill in the time as we sped along, bouncing over the waves in search of whales. We only saw one Sperm Whale, which might ...

      ... brought the boat into position and a siren signaled for us to jump into the water and swim to them. The water was only 13 degrees but we only noticed the cold for a second because in the next second we were surrounded by playing dolphins, which we tried to entertain and entice. Apparently they like it when you swim in circles with them or try to dive. It was quite hard to dive in the buoyant wet suits – a much easier way to ...
