Jan 30/13 Dear Rob & Jo-Anne: Just a note to say how much Chris and I enjoyed our Eagle Tour on Dec. 1st. Your jet boat is the ideal way to do this. Having been to NZ numerous times I was a bit apprehensive since jetboat use there often seems ill considered from an ecological standpoint. I guess being a sailor (sailboat) racing up and down narrow rivers at breakneck speed just doesn’t appeal. Driving at 100 kmh on shoulder-less NZ roads seems to provide enough “thrills & chills” .
Your jet boat use is both educational and carefully respects the local environment and the fauna. Both yours and David Hancock’s commentaries were very informative. Lunch after at the Kilby cafe was delightful.
