Turtle News December 2018


Well, the holidays are over, this post is almost a week late, and we are feeling that post-Christmas crash! December was an extremely busy month for us at Tranquility Island Resort. We had every single building full of guests, and we had lots of diving! We are still busy with courses and fun diving at the resort, so please forgive me for getting this info blast out a bit late.
