We recently went to Hamilton Island and we were fortunate to see and see a whole variety of marine life - including turtles, on a Turtle Discovery tour.
My two eldest sons and myself put on our snorkles and went out with guides standing on paddle boards. The guides on paddleboards were spotting for turles and when they found them they signalled to us and we all hurried over.
The excitement we all felt when we spotted our first turle was amazing as we hurried across to the next turtle that had been cited.
We saw 6 large turtles which made for a fantastic tour.
We saw some coral formations and tropical fish and colourful coral structures which I was not expecting to see off Hamilton Island's Catseye Beach. I enjoyed this so much we didn't go out to the outer reef as we just enjoyed the snokelling at Catseye Beach.
