We woke up quite early and got ready to head into town. We were planning on wandering around town, booking ourselves onto a boat trip for the following day and visiting a nearby island called Russell. Before we left for town we decided that because we liked our campsite so much we would book ourselves in for another night, the views are too good to miss out on! We headed into town and got some info on the different boat trips on offer and after almost no deliberation at all decided to go on one which takes all us around the 144 outlying islands, visits the 'hole in the rock' at Cape Brett and goes looking for dolphins and whales for about 4 hours. The deciding factor in choosing this trip was that if we do find an dolphins we can go and swim with them... we were sold!! Fingers crossed we'll see some, but if we don't we get a refund anyway
Since we got to New Zealand we have really struggled to get internet access and when we do it is either really slow, limited to 15 mins or won't let us download/upload more than 5mb of data, so hardly any photos for the time being we're sorry. We're trying to find some better internet though, so we'll put up lots of photos as soon as we can.
