She was intrigued to find out what the Jailhouse was like so we showed her around our room and the rest of the ...

Swimming with Dolphins (or not) in Akaroa Harbour

A travel blog entry by carolineanne22


... I don't really like fish (whitebait fritters is an exception)!

The drive took little over an hour and was slightly windy towards the end as we drove down the mountain and once there, we quickly checked myself in and I got changed into my wetsuit.
