I'll never forget when…

As someone who loves snorkelling, my most memorable experience has to be around the house reef at Baros Island. Known as one of the best areas to snorkel and dive in the Maldives I was amazed by the number of different exotic fish and by the number of reef sharks I was swimming with. The ultimate part of my snorkelling venture and an experience that I will never forget, was to swim with Dexter the turtle. The Marine biologists on the island are currently tracking and researching into the movements of the turtles that visit the reef and they have named all 13 of them! If you see one for yourself, take a photo or make a mental note of any distinguishing features, the team will then let you know who you have had the pleasure of swimming with.
