Today is the day we made our trip to the South Islands. Can’t wait to see clear skies and snow cap mountains! We decided to take the Bluebridge Ferry across. There are mainly two ferry companies that we can take but i chose the Bluebridge Ferry as it is much cheaper. Moreover, if you book in advance and purchase online (http://www.bluebridge.co.nz), the prices are much cheaper. However, do take note that it is non-refundable.
Next we head on to Kaikoura Farm Park for our Llama Trekking. We did the taster – One Hours River Trekking for NZD 59.

After the trek, we drove to our accommodation at Dolphin Lodge to check in.
Though the stay in Kaikoura was short, we had a great time. This is our first time having close encounters with the seals and llama. Our accomodation was also very comfortable and clean with ample heating.
