      Up early this morning to catch the ferry to the South Island, it was the same process as the spirit, took just as long to board and there was nothing to do on there for 2.5 hours.

Wir entschieden uns für eine Walbeobachtung aus der Luft, die wir für den nächsten Morgen buchten. Ich buchte zusätzlich noch eine Tour um mit den kleinen, süßen Dusky Delfinen zu schwimmen.
