Akaroa Harbor tour

We had fabulous weather for our Akaroa tour. The main interest was seeing 
Hector's Dolphins which are only found in New Zealand.

These are Hubby's phone photos of the gorgeous creatures.






Cathedral Cave, home of....

shags/cormorants. 



These are white-finned Little Blue Penguins!


Hubby captured this Yellow-Eyed Penguin on the shore...

and NZ Fur Seals.


This is the boat's mascot, Buster, that tries to jump overboard when he finds dolphins!

He are so lucky where we live to have dolphins come up to our boat just out in the bay. So beautiful. I haven't heard of this type you have shared here. Enjoy your week.
