We went to this beautiful location yesterday. We parked on the highway and walked in. According to my pedometer it is about 1.25 mile walk one way. Not hard, but hot! When we got down there, we all jumped in the water to snorkel and there were turtles everywhere! dozens and dozens -but it was very murky. The kids and I got out, but my hubby decided to snorkle across to the section where the turtles sleep. After we watched him climb out on the other side of the channel opening , we were hanging out when a tiger shark of approx 12' surfaced right next to us where we were sitting on the rocks! We were stunned! He/she was after something along the edge. I put on my shoes and hauled butt all the way around the bay to flag down the hubby to make sure he didn't swim back across that same channel. Instead he walk around towards the shallow dead end section and quickly crossed. As we were walking back around we ran into a gentleman who lives in one of the homes here. His family has had it for over 50 years, he said he had seen a tiger shark the day before eating a turtle, so he wasn't surprised that we saw one. The shark was amazing to see so close, but startled us to be sure! We live in the ocean town of Santa Cruz, so I am used to the thought of sharks in the water, but with the recent attacks on Hawaii and Maui , this was a reminder that we are entering their food chain when we go in the water :) be safe!
