Lucky that we had a wonderful weather. We book 11:00am but already get on the plane was 12:54pm. I think because they haven't control the time well. Overall, it's a great activity that you should do in Wanaka.

Yeah, each person would need their own camera guy. When they take your pictures, they want to make sure that they get every moment of your dive and not have to focus on other people around them.
