He'll never go hungry in Pelorus Sound, Berend. The mussel farms and chinook salmon farms abound here too. I enjoyed cruising by and he wasn't perturbed by our presence.

I am very excited!! I believe it must be much more exciting to see it with my naked eyes.

Greetings Gerard. Thanks for your visit. A sun-baking seal has a lot of appeal but isn't very tolerant of disturbances!

Dear Ah-Pong,

Every image of NZ that appeals to you must be whetting your appetite for that ultimate visit about which you have so longed dreamed. You will see these fellows with your own eyes one day. Put Nugget Point on your proposed itinerary for seals at their most prolific best.
