Turtles at Carlisle Bay

Recommended Posts

Anyone have experience swimming out to where the turtles are from shore? Is it that  far out that taking a boat ride is absolutely necessary?

I've done it 3x.... it looks fairly close to the beach, but I feel like it might be farther than it looks.  The Boatyard has a free turtle snorkel boat, it's included in your entrance fee (which is cheap).

It's a long swim and the catamaran and other tours attracting turtles for their customers do not want you mixed in with their crowds.  Best bet is the Boatyard or paying $20 for a tour from the guys trolling for customers on the beach.

I've done it before. I didn't think it was that far. I snorkel a lot though.

Best not to try to do it on your own unless you are a VERY strong swimmer.  

A tour offered at Boatyard is OK ... but taking a four or five hour catamaran to swim with the turtles that includes a beach stop is great.  :classic_cool:
