Swimming with Sea Turtles


“The beach is in our blood. Everyone in our family returns to the beach instinctively, just like the sea turtles.”
-Sandy Archibald

One of the highlights of the Tobago Cays in the Grenadines is the opportunity to swim with sea turtles in the wild.  They, like dolphins, epitomize the beauty of nature and the magic of the sea.  They are such gentle and peaceful creatures; they glide effortlessly along sea floor, slowly nibbling turtle grass, swimming up to the surface every few minutes to pop up their heads and catch a breath of fresh air before diving down again.   There's no rush, no hurry and their movements are slow and methodical.  On this particular day the water was pretty churned up from some weather, but on a clear day you'll see as many as twelve to twenty turtles feeding here.  It's incredible and a must visit if you ever find yourself in the Grenadines.

Love,
Brittany & Scott

Great picture! Love the turtles .. I guess because that's definitely not something we'll see in Louisiana, and like the dolphin and whales .. so magical!
