Experience a relaxing time at a beautiful bay!  Swim with sea turtles, learn about the history of the island and discover native plants, flowers and trees during a educational, guided nature-walk to a sugar cane mill ruin.  For those that are looking for a more active experience, this tour has a kayaking option too (see details below).  

Your guide will lead you to the area of the bay where you can swim with sea turtles. A perfect spot for first-time snorkelers! After an introduction to the equipment, your guide will take you to the shallow water for a snorkel lesson. Your guide will remain with you in the water, leading you to the sea turtles discovering other sea life and taking your underwater photos (included). 

All who participate in our guided snorkel are GUARANTEED to see multiple sea turtles on every excursion. Because we snorkel in small groups, turtles are a lot less likely to get scared and swim away. Each tour is limited to 12 snorkelers (6 per guide).

Watch turtles glide through the water right in front of you in the calm and protected bay. Turtles will come up for air, so that you will get a close look at these majestic creatures! 

After snorkeling, you’l can relax under the shade of a tree or in the sun and enjoy the beautiful beach and views. A cooler will be packed with sandwiches, a snack and plenty of bottled water (included).
