A Green Turtle @ Saxon Reef @ The Great Barrier Reef April 9, 2006 By jennifer I went snorkling on Saturday off Cairns. It was a magnificent day. I saw lots of fish and coral. But the highlight was swimming with this green turtle at Saxon reef. You can’t properly see the turtle’s head for its fin, but poking out from its mouth is a bit of seaweed which it had snatched from my fingers.
