Had to get up fairly early as we had booked on the 9am wildlife cruise.

Martin looked very worse for ware. But we all boarded the boat at 8:50am and set sail at 9am.

The cruise started by taking us around the harbour where we saw huge ships that come over from Asia to fill up with grain or nickel. Then we started cruising the archipelagos.

Within a few minutes we saw a few pods of dolphins so stopped to take photos and the dolphins followed the boat for a while.

We stopped at the tea rooms for some lunch and then headed back to the hostel to catch up on some well earned sleep. We had a quiet evening watching TV and eating take away.
