A group of friends from back home were here to spend a couple of weeks with me and together with Robyn; we had decided to go on what has to be the ultimate wildlife adventure. We were all way too excited to sleep and watched the sun rise as we drove along. Upon arrival, we were given breakfast and a safety briefing, and then headed out into open water.
