Wondering if anyone can tell me the best time and place to see turtles while snorkeling. We prefer venturing out on our own vs group tours. Thanks.
Hi, we just got back from Aruba on Monday. We snorkeled every day, morning and afternoon. We saw turtles at Catalina Cove 4 days in a row. It was always in the morning, before the tours showed up, between 8 -9:00AM. They were always fairly shallow, feeding on the seaweed that looks like thick crabgrass. There was one turtle in particular that we always saw. We knew it was him because he had a tear in his right rear foot. He was not afraid at all and let us swim with him for 15-30 minutes at a time. It was wonderful! He was also very photogenic - I will attach some pics in a little while. My wife also saw a baby, only 8 or 9 inches long.
