Lochmara Lodge underwater observatory

Our holiday adventure took us to Lockmara Lodge where they have lots of thing to do as
well as overnight stays.
We only went to the Underwater Observatory where Galen-from-New-York gave us
a tour in three stages. First he  tried to lure a local stingray, but it didn't show up until later!
Second was a 'touch' tank which was fun--shown in the top row of photos and large
photo on the right.


Then we went down to the observation seating of an old glass-bottom boat that is permanently 
moored. As the fish swam past in a huge school, the cormorant/shag kept swimming by!

That must be an exciting place, especially so if the creatures are wild rather than an aquarium?

It must be fantastic to have the possibility to touch the marine fauna!

Looks like a good place to be. Have made it as far as Australia but not to NZ. Don't think we will ever make it now, too far and too expensive 😒 Thanks for the comment, have a good week Diane

I have stayed there. The accommodation was great as were the walks and food in the cafe. Heartily recommend it. A great place for photography too.

What a fun tour! That cormorant looks like fish a itself under water. No wonder they catch a lot.

Su-sieee! Mac said...

Fun! I like the glass-bottomed boat concept.
