Swimming with green sea turtles.   Choose between our walking tour or kayak excursion.  Both options include transportation, lunch and photos! Experience the difference of snorkeling in small groups and avoid crowded tours! See our Turtle Excursion for more information.

After the turtle snorkeling, enjoy a break at a beautiful sandy beach (restrooms and showers are available).  Your guide will provide a cooler with your sandwiches, a snack and your beverages (included). Vegetarian and gluten free options are available by request (let us know of any special requests when you book the tour)!  

Swimming with Turtles

We kayak in tandem boats, but you can have an odd number in your group (usually one will paddle with the guide). 

If you decide not to kayak, choose the "Sea Turtle Snorkel with Beach Break" you will be provided a beach chair and the option to join your guide on a short nature walk to learn about local history, native plants and their many uses. There is plenty of shade at the beach.  Let us know if you have a baby or child under the age of 5, so that we can make accommodations (we usually split the snorkeling time so that both parents can snorkel).
