So much fun!

This was one of the greatest things we’ve done so far in New Zealand! Awesome boat trip, we even got to see a penguin! The paddle boarding and snorkeling was awesome and lots of fun. Went on a short walk up to a view point on Roberton Island, and then found a nice sunny spot on Waewaetorea Island for the water activities. Awesome tour too, with tidbits of information about the islands we were visiting. We had a really great time!

Ein Träumchen

Wir hatten eine tolle Zeit, die sich nicht wie fünf Stunden angefühlt hat. Wir haben in einem kleinen Boot die schönen Inseln erkundet, interessante Geschichten gehört und die Landschaft genossen. Ebenfalls wundern wir gut versorgt beim Afternoon tea und beim Schnorchel/Paddelboot fahren. Das Highlight der Tour war allerdings das Sichten von mehreren Pinguinen und einem Delfin.
