    ... Cruise and also have time to swim and snorkel in the warm water.

    Unfortunately we're not able to swim with dolphins in the afternoon as the pod has a number of baby dolphins. Jenna takes advantage of the opportunity totake part in the boom net experience! (Photos to come later!)

    In the evening we enjoy our last meal in Paihia at at the Seafood Restaurant and the food is fabulous!
