Once you arrive at Cape Vidal your ranger will give you a introduction and steps to follow when coming across a Turtle how to photograph and how to approach these protected species needs to be adhered to at all times.

The Turtles one may witness on these outings include Logger Head's and Leather Back's its a majestic and spine chilling experience. Watch as the females prepare their nests and then endeavour to lay their eggs. Did you know that only the females will ever touch ground and that the males once born will never again go aground in their lives.

Currently the sightings have been incredible 2015, with numerous sightings of both species (Logger Head as well as Leather Back's). However we have been incredibly lucky with Leopard sightings todate we have had a 94% success rate. This is absolutely incredible as on most nights we have had more than one sighting and this does not include the same Leopard. Most of the sightings have been tacking place north of Catalina Bay and one sighting on the beach as well.
