There were quite a few turtles swimming not that far offshore at Honeymoon Beach. There is a lot of underwater vegetation that the turtles were feeding on.

Really easy! Make sure you have cash for the ride. We usually got the first one out to spend the full day at the beach. The restaurant at the ferry is good and quick too!
