Turtle Watching

Chiemi San was helping our guests yesterday with turtle spotting from the Jetty at Pom Pom Island.  It is only possible when we have high tide which happens twice a day and the turtles come in to feed off the sea grass which is shallow water.  When the tide goes out, the turtles must return to deeper water where they feed off soft corals, algae and jellyfish.

昨日、ゲストと一緒に海亀を探しに桟橋に行ってきたのよ。1日に2度の満潮時、海亀は浅瀬に生える海草を食べに桟橋付近まで寄ってくるの。干潮時はソフトコーラルや海草、クラゲがいる深場に帰っていくのよ。

The guests and Chiemi san were lucky enough to witness a large Green Turtle swim very close under the jetty and were lucky enough to get a photo which is included here.  My favourite time for turtle watching from the jetty is in the evening after dinner when you can enjoy the sea breeze and stars at the same time.

ちょどラッキーなことに桟橋付近を浮遊する海亀をゲストと一緒に見ることができたわ!この海亀ウォッチング、私のお気に入りの時間帯は夜、ディナーのあとね。夜の桟橋はキレイな星空にフレッシュな海風も同時に楽しめるのよ。
