Sapphire Beach - Best Snorkeling day yet Part TURTLE TURTLE TURTLE

The hanger on is a REMORA or SHARKSUCKER.

A remora breaths under the water, while a sea turtle must surface every once in awhile to breath air.  The Sharksucker moves to the bottom of his host when the turtle surfaces...

Once the turtle takes a breath, he drops to the ocean floor to eat more grass (the sucker eats the leftovers), and it all repeats...

He doesn't seem to mind.


  1. AWESOME shots! I especially like the hanger on shot.

  2. Fantastic shots! So nice to see oil-free water and turtles!
