A long drive from Lake Tekapo to our next stop, Akaroa. A gorgeous, harbour village on a peninsula. We decided to stay here 2 nights as it was so lovely and a great find.
Today we swam with the worlds smallest and rarest Hector dolphins, the only place in the world you can swim with them. It was touch and go whether Nick was going to join (due to the sea temperature and the fact we had to swim in the middle of the ocean with fish!) ... he did it though. With our 5mm wetsuits on and another 5people we set sail and found a great spot where we all jumped in and swam with these playful dolphins, singing underwater to attract them to us. Such a great morning, sunny and warm and so calm .. a perfect day for dolphin swimming!
