      ... at all afraid of the kayaks. They played and swam around and under the kayaks checking us out and one followed my kayak for several minutes. We had a great couple of hours - this was one of the best activities I did on this trip.

      After the kayaking I went back to the Alpine-Pacific and Courtney and I went fishing. Well, Courtney fished while I watched. When I was looking for a fishing tour for Courtney there ...

      ... high 30's, but a nice breeze. We found the car park and made our way up to the waterfall. Again the walk was really well managed and very sympathetic to the surroundings. The waterfall was high and fell into a lovely lagoon but unfortunately we didn't see any baby seals.

Tomorrow, we have booked to swim with the wild dolphins, they lend us wet suits, thankfully as the pacific is cold. Had supper in a restaurant overlooking the bay, Ken had chowder, I had green lipped mussels, really huge and ...

      ... We weren't travelling for long until we spotted another one. So, again, we ran upstairs to get a better view of it. It was a different whale from before but still really large and calm.
