Swimming with Sea Turtles!

Um, so just when you think a chance baby sea turtle encounter is the best thing since sliced bread…along comes a full blown amazing “swim with the sea turtles” kind of once in a lifetime experience.

Talk about totally unreal and mind blowing. Or at least that’s the way I felt after we swam with a dozen or so turtles off Tamarindo Beach in Culebra.

We had heard the snorkeling was pretty spectacular off Tamarindo, but little did we know it was also home to a huge family of turtles! And sheesh, who cares about coral when you can swim with turtles?

Hey! Just wondering if you used gopro for this and if so, what version? We’re headed to BVI for a honeymoon and are wondering if we should upgrade our gopro or if we need the dive filter for snorkeling? Thanks!!!
