This morning we head out to find some of Australia's best waves and spend two hours under the instruction of a qualified surfing teacher learning this most Australian of pastimes. That magic moment where you and the wave all become one as you surf towards the shore could be the beginning of a life long addiction.

This incredible optional wildlife experience involves a four hour boat cruise. We find the friendly populations and can swim and snorkel amongst them. There is nothing that can parallel the feeling of communing with wild creatures such as these.

This morning we head out and learn to surf with Spike where you can get another oppertunity to surf. So we go to a beautiful deserted beach and spend the next two hours mastering the surf breaks.
