The turtles at Akumal Bay ~ underwater pics!!

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to share some turtle pics while swimming and snorkeling during our day at Akumal Bay in 2006. This little guy was literally about 40 feet out from shore. There were tons of snorkel groups out there that paid big bucks and were wearing their high tech equipment to find the turtles, and my little 5-foot aunt found this amazing creature without any kind of mask on. My brother then paparrazied the poor thing with his digital cam, lol. I think because theyâ€re so used to having people around, theyâ€re not scared at all and will actually swim very close to you. wink.gif So donâ€t bother paying to have a snorkel guide take you out, itâ€s so easy to find em on your own!!!

 

If youâ€re ever in the area and decide to take a dip, they tend to stay where thereâ€s a little bit of sea grass on the bottom just in front but a little to the left of Lo Ha restaurant ~ and yes they are absolutely beautiful!!! And if you swim about 100 to 150 feet out thereâ€s an amazing line of reefs with tons of colorful coral and marinelife. cheesy.gif Such a beautiful place *sigh*

It sounds amazing!!

What kind of camera do/did you have to take those pics?? Was it just the disposable underwater one?? We are thinking about buying a $250 underwater case for our $450 camera...does that even make sense! LOL

Wow, those are so peaceful! Thank you for sharing.

 

For Bachata bride asking about underwater cameras - you can buy digital cameras that you can use underwater up to 10ft or 30ft (more expensive). I know Olympus makes one for sure. The other option is a disposable underwater camera. Underwater housings in general are expensive.

    • Let me know if it works. I'm really curious to know
    • I believe that it is absolutely not important what kind of gift, the main thing is that it was presented with all heart. For example, recently my friend had an anniversary and I gave him an original painting in word art style. He really liked it, as I found the right words. Hmm .. Finding out where their first kiss was will be a real problem, but I think it can be solved. Just arrange a walk with them and ask more about how they started dating, where they first met, etc. They themselves will reveal all the secrets to you. I hope you can make an amazing gift for them. Good luck !!
