New Zealand: International Antarctica Center and Kaikoura Sperm Whale Watching

 International Antarctic Centre
Amphibious Hagglund Track Vehicle for travel over ice and floating on water
Calm before the Storm (simulation).  Soon it was too dark to see, windy and so cold!

Fur seals enroute to whale watching.

We saw two male (always male in these waters) Sperm Whales surface (they dive up to a mile deep and typically surface every 40 minutes) on our whale watching cruise.  My photos were poor so you will have to trust me!
Between sperm whale sightings, we saw many Dusky Dolphins.

Our evening reward was Rock Lobster!
