I also booked several trips with the dolphins in NZ a) because they are lovely and b) to attempt to get over fear and loathing of water BUT I never got to go. Why? Because it sodding well rained every time, didn't it?! And they cancelled (the company that is, not the dolphins, although presumably they asked the dolphins first).

I am a very strong swimmer, apparently. I just HATE the water! There are things in there that eat us and we do not belong there. We do not have gills.

On a serious note - yes no probs to take you thru a scuba course!!! In fact I'll take you on a try dive first so you can see if ya like it!!!

Apparently there's some good diving to be had in parts of NZ!!!

p.s. I might like to have a good joke about on here, but when I take someone diving there's no f***in about - peoples lives at risk 'n all that!!!

I dived a few times in Kaikoura. The water temp in January (midsummer) was 11 degrees!!!!

Kind of like the UK in winter.
