We decided to take it easy today and feel we made the proper decision taking an Akaroa nature cruise on a new motored catamaran. The weather was perfect.
Our primary goal today was to see some Hector’s dolphins, the smallest and rarest marine dolphins in the world. As you can see we did.
Note the dog on board. He can hear the dolphins and points them out to the captain.
Then we visited a New Zealand fur seal colony. They are sometimes difficult to spot. Besides beautiful scenery, the photo immediately above has two seals perched on the top left.
Even the rocks were pretty.
