Well worth the trip!

We bought these tickets for our daughter and her partner as a birthday treat and they just loved it - a highlight in their week long stay in Wellington. The touch down to see the seals around the coast a real highlight for them and all smiles at great service too. Recommend to anyone thinking they might like to try!
