Rush Hour at Caves – Turtle Airport at its best

06 Apr 2011

Green and Hawksbill Turtles are the most common species of Turtle in the Maldives. Usually known as solitary creatures, we have the privilege of seeing them enjoying good company.

Kuredu Caves, located right on our doorstep on the outside of the Atoll, has provided shelter for a large population of green sea turtles for more than 20 years.

A diving or snorkeling excursion to “Turtle Airport” promises reencounters with old friends – the turtle with only 3 fins for example – as well as the discovery of a few new “dudes” enjoying the advantages of this beautiful reef formation.
Resting in the overhangs, feeding on the reef, getting shiny all over again on the cleaning stations or flying around, coming or going for a breath on the surface… Turtle Action is guaranteed!

This weeks installment of The Last 7 Days…On Kuredu features some of the characters that are part of the Kuredu Caves Community!

If you’re not too busy avoiding a crash or landing on a turtle, have a look around for napoleons, moray eels, porcupine, lion, scorpion, even ghost pipe and leaf fish… it’ll give you a surprise – it’s always a pleasure!
