Didnt get to see the turtles that day but still had an amazing tour of the coral reefs at the beach. Our tour guide would dive down and carefully pick up different organisms for close up viewing (we saw sea urchins and sea cucumbers!) Our group all got along super well and we had a lot of fun together. Made for some great memories! The location is also insane! Very beautiful and worth it.

Carl knew his fish. He knew what each fish we saw was. We found sleeping turtles. He took a picture of my husband & I under a complete rainbow. I really enjoyed this. Only, bring a towel. They provided everything for snorkling but no towels. I learned how to make sure a mask fits and how to clear it. I now think i can snorkle anywhere by myself. Thanks
