It was an early start with morning wake up calls taking place at 5.45 am. With a bit of shuttling to and fro we managed to all get to the train station just on time. We boarded the train at 7.00am and headed off on our trip to Kaikoura, it was lovely. We had a light breakfast, then sat back and viewed the lovely scenery up the east coast. As we hit the Kaikoura coast we were lucky enough to see a huge pod of dolphins jumping in and out of the water! It was a very enjoyable day enjoyed by all.
