We took Captain Alans boat tour to this nature reserve and had an absolutely amazing time snorkelling with at least a dozen turtles, we were so close we could have reached out and touched them when they surfaced to breathe. Beautiful beach.

We stopped at Tintamarre Island with Captain Alan's tours. We went swimming with the sea turtles and fed some smooth grey hound sharks. The snorkeling here is some of the best I have ever done in my travels. A great spot!
