Guests on a recent Northern Exposure Tour were treated to a snorkel with this snoozy green turtle! Sleeping on the reef, guests onboard our vessel Riptide were able to observe and learn about these amazing creatures on a guided snorkel by one of our Eco-Hosts.
When sleeping, turtles can slow their heart rate down, staying below the surface for well over four hours! This particular turtle decided to put on a show, cruising along the reef before taking several breaths on the surface in front of some very excited passengers!
