We booked the Bird watching trip to Ulva Island. We were surprised that there were only 3 of us on this trip! Talk about a treat! Our crew was great, very informative and fun. We were on our way to Ulva Island when suddenly our captain spotted a whale breaching the water. We spent quite a bit of time following him and watching. It was great! We saw blue penguins playing in the water and seals laying on rocks. Our tour of Ulva Island was great. A very beautiful place and our guide was fantastic, sharing all sorts of information. We saw several rare birds and the Southern Right Whale?! It was the best finale to our last day in NZ! You can't beat it!
