Akumal Beach

Snorkelling with Green Sea Turtles right off the Beach!
After our first sighting it just got better, and it was common to see several turtles at a time.
We swam further, discovering another of the larger green turtles inhabiting the bay. We carefully positioned ourselves – watching, waiting patiently.

Then with a flick of his paddles, and head raised – he glided upwards off the sea floor, and up towards the surface. This is the chance we had been waiting for!

What a beautiful site they make – paddles out-stretched, as they swim up from below.

Then suddenly he breaches the surface for air, and we swim alongside him. It’s a fascinating moment – certainly one we will never forget.
