Getting close to Hectors dolphins

We got close to Hectors dolphins right in the beginning and discovered sea stars in a cave later on. The guide was very knowledgeable and even had tips for other experiences in nature - very warmly recommended!

Great day kayaking. There was a bit of instruction to start with. We had never worn spray skirts while kayaking before. Had hoped for single person kayaks, but we accepted the tandem ones and enjoyed the day. Finally saw some Hector dolphins toward the end of the day. Got lucky with the weather and had very little wind. Tour guide Graviel sp? was very knowledgeable.
