Just when you thought it couldn’t get any greener……
There are more shades of green here than I have ever seen.
Akaroa is a tendered port, which means that their dock sits in too shallow water for our larger ship to go, so they put us on the lifeboats and tender us to the shore.
We were group #9, and got on the smaller boat around 10. Again, Neil had arranged the excursion, a nature-centric boat 🚣♂️ ride.
Here is a pic of where the cruise went.
Out on the water 💦 you can really see the volcanic formations of this island nation.
We saw lots of caves and lots of dolphins 🐬 swimming Neil even saw a penguin 🐧 swimming.
It was a great 2 hour tour We saw a lot of landscapes and walked through the sweet seaside/ beach 🏖 town.
