Bookme ReviewTurtle Discovery - 2 hour Sailing Outrigger TourPosted by Gaye Coles from Australia on 10 Sep 2018

  • Gaye Coles said... I was pretty excited about this tour, up front and personal with turtles on a sailing canoe a chance to paddle or relax. I arrived and shook hands with Steven a pleasant chap who kidnaped my phone (thus camera) and a few other personal items and locked them up on the beach. He gave me a camera to take photos of the scenery and of course turtles with the promise these pics would be forwarded to me or uploaded onto the web page. Ok after a little talk and wait no one else was coming on the tour. The quiet flapping of sails and wind were absent replaced by an noisy little outboard motor as we traversed the bay. We saw lots of turtle heads at a distance that dipped and were gone long before I could really say that was what I was seeing. Hmm I thought the wind might pick up and then we might use the sails and get some much earned quiet and then perhaps we could see the turtles from a little closer. Well Steven continued to tell me a little about the coast and bay explaining which was informative and gave a little onsite into the post cyclone recovery. I was determined to like this quirky little tour given that it was on the water however that lovely lei to keep as a memento I had to ask for, the photos apparently were accidentally lost when there was an attempt to load them. A substantial snack that I really didn’t need but ate 2/3rds anyway. Maybe if it was a group of people it might be a little less awkward and maybe fun or romantic. I recommend you try the tour as it is different and Steven is a friendly bloke but hold onto your camera so you will have something to share and reflect on long after the trip.
