Touring New Zealand's North Island by Campervan

Day 4 - Monday, Feb. 18: the city was very quiet on our first day because it was Sunday. Today was very different, but we werenít downtown much anyway. At 9:00 we met the shuttle bus for Kelly Tarlton's Antarctic Encounter & Underwater World. This was one of Cathyís must-sees, and Iím now glad it was. From a recreated polar camp to an incredible underwater viewing tunnel and penguin tour by snowcat, it was excellent, well worth the admission (discounted to $26.50 at the Skytower iSite, the New Zealand Tourism office).
