Had a wonderful time with an experienced non-English speaking sailor! We all had a great time with English/Spanish speak.

A fun experience watching the hugh olive riddle turtles come ashore, work their way up the sand, dig a nesting hole, drop about 100 eggs, rest up a bit, then work their way back to sea. It's a night time tour and no flash camera's are allowed. They are very ecological careful not to disturb the turtles or their nests. A very informative & educational event.
