A short walk down from our hotel in Hikkaduwa, Sri Lanka there was a spot where you could go and see sea turtles right on the beach and in the shallow waters. There was around 4-5 that you could see daily and feed them seaweed (with the help of a local for 100 rupees or ~ $0.70 USD…if you need it) and watch them swim around. The local beach bars and hotels would loan out snorkels so you could swim and watch them under water if you like.
-That’s my seaweed…don’t even think about it human.-
This was way more entertaining than whale watching and free. There are a couple species of turtles that visit the coral reefs in the area we stayed. The ones that we saw were green sea turtles I think…obviously because they are green, swim and enjoy seaweed……..AND pizza.
-I asked for double pepperoni. You will pay for this human.-
I wanted to see if Splinter was around but I think we left him back up the coast in our beach hut in Tangalle.
-No more pizza? I’m outta here.-
