First Iceberg Sighting From 
New Zealand Shore in 75 Years

 


20 Nov 06 - The giant chunk of ice was visible Thursday from Dunedin on  
South Island. A flotilla of about 100 icebergs — some as big as houses — 
were first spotted south of New Zealand early this month.

The last time an iceberg was visible from the New Zealand shore was 
June 1931, said Mike Williams, an oceanographer at the National Institute 
of Water & Atmospheric Research.

The icebergs have become a tourist attraction, with sightseers paying more 
than $300 each to fly over them.
