Mating Sea Turtles

Yesterday’s diving in Gorontalo included encounters with Green sea turtles. On the way to our first dive site,Miguel’s Diving crew spotted some unusual flapping on the still blue ocean surface: a pair of turtles mating. We proceeded past the happy couple then stopped in order to watch them from a discreet distance and so not to disturb them. On the second dive at the spur-and-groove coral formations of Alleyways, we saw another couple of turtles on a deep coral point. One quickly disappeared over the wall, perhaps the jittery suitor. The other one stayed perfectly still as we made a wide arc past their location below. Miguel’s Diving asks guests to swim past sea turtles, rather than straight at them, and view them from the side, so as not to frighten these gentle creatures. Turtles in Gorontalo are not accustomed to humans, although a total of six saw us yesterday.
