We’re on our way with 5 other travelers and 2 crew to spend the night in a boat on the NZ Fiord (that's the way they spell it), Doubtful Sound! This is remote – two hours just to get to the boat!
NZ doesn’t have bears and other large mammals, but they do have seals! …and they 17 varieties of penguins! This is a Fiordland Penguin that we snuck up on – see his yellow eyebrows?
We were so excited we could hardly stay in the boat! This dolphin swam just in front of us for at least ten minutes, turning his head to look at us, too!
We tied up the boat in this beautiful cove but the sandflies kept us all inside the cabin sharing our stories.
