After breakfast, we set off to meet the local dolphins - the smallest in the world. We were given swimming suits, of course. Water temperature - 15 degrees. In a motor boat, we rode along the bay, saw dolphins very close, twice plunged into the water. But the dolphins did not want to play with us. What the surprise - part of the money was returned to us, because dolphins did not swim right between us, did not play.
After was lunch, right on the beach, just like all the locals do. I brought a surprise for everyone - local champagne and white wine.
And Karina bought all the participants a small fluffy kiwi with a"voice. And for Jody, a big sheep. Everyone was touched. And so are we. It was in the "French" Akaroa.
Then we reached Christchurch and said goodbye.
At the airport, they handed things over to the left-luggage office and went to inspect the local large Antarctic museum. Fun, diverse and cold at times. There is a room where even a snowstorm is imitated).
4D cinema with a documentary and special effects: shaking, snow, water and soap bubbles. Live disabled penguins, which were selected by volunteers and scientists, an exposition about the first expedition at the beginning of the 20th century.
Then there was a 45 minute flight to Queenstown. The same place at the airport where the guides met us 8 days ago. Miss our group
