Robin, Motuara Island


I spent yesterday afternoon on a tour through Queen Charlotte Sound to Motuara Island which is a bird sanctuary… Along the way we saw a pod of Hectors Dolphins who raced around our boat & were jumping out of the water & having what looked like a lot of fun! As the guide said it is so great to see them doing this in a natural environment, with no coaxing or training or rewards or anything… They were really inquisitive & boy could they accelerate when they wanted to! There must have been six or eight racing around…

For future reference the tour I took was really well organised & very affordable (NZ$99 for a 4 hour trip) and was run by Nature Tours in Picton – I highly reccomend them!
