Hi again - Here are the rest of my honeymoon sea turtle pictures. These are from Barbados. We went on a catamaran snorkeling tour and spent about 30 minutes swimming with these turtles - it was amazing. The turtles were not really afraid of people at all and we were allowed to touch their shells as they swam by us. You can see in one of the pictures that our tour guide was hand feeding the turtles (I think it was raw fish). It was hard to narrow down my favorite pictures so I'm going to post a lot. The very last picture is my personal favorite and I've got a framed copy hanging over Toby's tank :)

Unbelievable and so beautiful... "a picture is worth a thousand words," but if one else tragedy like spilled oil in the Gulf of Mexico... I think, it is not a good idea to use a bacterial components to remove oil from water because of turtles.

Thanks everyone for the compliments! I wanted to share these with my fellow "turtle people" because it's just not the same sharing them with "non turtle people" ;)

Very wonderful pics. So much is not understood about this fascinating turtles but they truly are one of the great wonders of the seven seas! That is a dream trip for so many. I have been fortunate enough to swim with them in the corals off Roatan Island, Honduras. And the corals of Belize. Thanks for sharing. I never had a camera during my encounters.
