If you happen to be on the island now and for the next few days, you are in luck. Get yourself down to South Point around 6:30 to 7:00 PM and you can watch all the mating going on there.
The turtles have arrived for their annual mating rituals and there are hundreds of them bobbing around in the water, coming up for air in between their turtle foreplay. It is an amazing site to see all of these turtles in one place. Well, actually you can see them scattered from my house south, but the greatest accumulation is at South Point.
They are a bit too far out and too sporadic in their bobbing to get any pictures. But you can see them fine with the naked eye.
In about a month the females will return and start laying their eggs on the beaches of the east side of the island. Another amazing event to watch. Strictly no picture taking, flashes or flashlights are allowed at this time. It will frighten the mothers-to-be back into the water before they accomplish their strenuous task.
If you are lucky, like we were last night, you will see a pod of dolphins playing around in the water near them.
I'm going back for another look tonight.
