        We arrived in Kaikoura yesterday afternoon to find the best accommodation yet! A beautiful apartment overlooking the sea with every modern convenience.
        Our day started with a visit to Fyffe House, the oldest house in Kaikoura that was once a whaling station.
        We then had a walk along the costal path with some fantastic views across the bay …

There were literally hundreds of dusky dolphins as well as a handful of common dolphins and at least one New Zealand fur seal in the same couple of acres of sea. It was a breathtaking sight and one that we had never expected to see in our lifetimes. We didn't know where to look!

We were advised to hug the shoreline on our way out of the inlet as vessels of all sizes, including ferries and cruise ships, were also navigating the inlet. Needless to say we paddled quickly to cross over to the opposite shore. Once safely across we continued our day enjoying the scenery and fresh sea air. After an hour of delightful paddling the wind began to pickup and shift. We pointed ...

        ... we stopped off at probably the most dangerous spot to try and manoeuvre from, the middle of a blind bend on each side after spotting what we thought were seals from the road. These 'seals’ in fact turned out to be crazy surfers. Neither my mum or I would be able to tell you how freezing cold it was that afternoon in Kaikoura so the fact there were lunatics in the sea made us shiver even more. We also had to cross train tracks to get to the ...
