Incredible experience !

Actual experience seeing turtle nesting was incredible but the tour could have been organised better. If we ought to do it again, we would ask for Verny to guide this tour as he was incredible in canal tour.

Nous avons pris ce tour dans l'espoir d'assister au merveilleux phénomène de ponte des tortues marines et nous avons été ravis. Nous avons pu voir une tortue en train de pondre et une autre qui retournait à l'eau. Notre guide, qui parlait français, a été très efficace et très pédagogue (nous avons appris pleins de choses sur les tortues). La visite est très bien organisée et l'intimité des tortues bien respectée. Je recommande vivement cette magnifique expérience de la nature.
