Travel over jungle-clad hills with picturesque views en route to beautiful Havanah Harbour. Here, you'll climb aboard the Seaspray vessel to motor or sail, depending on the wind, across the beautiful azure waters. Keep an eye out for some spinner dolphin friends along the way.

Your destination, the Tranquility Turtle Conservatory on Tranquility Island, is where baby hawksbill turtles (Eretmochelys imbricata) are raised. At the age of one year, they are tagged and released into the wild. Visit with the turtles; then, take a 15- to 20-minute tropical bush walk to the tree-clad picnic area at Jade Beach. This is where you'll learn about the technology used at the base, including solar power and other innovations.

A packed picnic lunch is served at the beach, and afterwards you may wish to swim or snorkel from the beach. Alternatively, hop aboard the snorkel tender for a trip to the outer reef.

Re-board the Seaspray and head back to the mainland to rendezvous with the coach and transfer back to the ship.
