We had a surprise visitor on our cruise yesterday. A yellow eyed penguin decided to stop on the rocks to catch some late afternoon sun. He might look a little fuzzy but that is the photo quality not the penguin! :-)
Our Nature Cruises and Dolphin Swimming experience depart from Akaroa which is only a 90 minute scenic drive from Christchurch. The Diamond Harbour and Quail Island ferry depart from Lyttelton in Christchurch.
