Here in Cayman we are in the middle of turtle breeding season, and divers diving with Ocean Frontiers, on the East End of the island are getting a little more than a PG-13 show. On Friday 17th July two leatherback turtles were spotted mating at the surface! This is a real special treat that they only get to see 2-3 times a year. Typically they see green or hawksbill turtles while diving. The green turtles can get so large that they deceivingly appear to be leatherbacks, which tend to be the biggest of the three. Leatherbacks can be distinguished from the other species by their prominent ridges that run down their shells. Not to be confused with the easily recognizable typical (and sometimes seen as sunglass print) 'tortoise shell'.
Why not take advantage of the Fall "Buddy goes Free" special and you never know you too might spot something different too.
