I know I’ve said it before, but if you want to see sea turtles, just snorkel Maho Bay. You will not be disappointed!
I believe that we can thank the powers that be here.
To begin with, once turtles were routinely caught in turtle nets and now they are now protected. Catching them is illegal.
Secondly, not only are the turtles protected, but there habitat is also. The turtle thrive on seagrass (especially turtle grass) and the seagrass bed at Maho is lush and healthy. In great part this is due to the mooring program and the prohibition of anchoring in the bay. This prevents the seagrass from being torn up by anchor chains scraping the sea floor as the anchored boat swings to and fro.
