Today I saw an actual whale! It was amazing. His name was Tiaki and he is a Sperm whale. I can’t believe I actually got to see him. I traveled to Pikora on the East Coast of the South island. It took about half hour for our boat to travel to the site where Tiaki was last seen. It was then about another tense 15 mins before he surfaced for air. it was really incredible just being able to see the top of him in the water and puffts as he cleared his blow hole.
We also saw a group of about 200 dusky dolphins but Im not as keen on them as I am whales so they don’t really get much of a mention here.
