We are nearly at the end of our bus tour and our second last stop is Kaikoura, a small beach town on the east coast of the
South Island. The
main activity here is whale watching and swimming with the dolphins. We did
neither – but did see dolphins jumping from shore for free. On the way to
Kaikoura we drove through
to pick up and drop off some passengers. There isn’t much to see here due to recent
earth quake devastation; however we did stop at Ohau Point Seal Colony &
Peninsula Seal Colony along the high way. Very entertaining creatures indeed. Christchurch

order to see all that we missed the first time through. We stayed at the
downtown Nomads hostel where we had
nice clean rooms with an en suite bathroom, good laundry services, and an
evening snack included in our fee. Wellington
