Blue movies
sharm el sheikh-based videographer tom osborn
of Camel Dive Club captured rare footage of
turtles mating in the blue off yolanda reef in the
ras mohammed national park. When mating, the
male turtle ‘clings on’ to the female who controls
the buoyancy and takes both to the surface for air.
‘i spotted them in the first 5m,’ explained osborn.
‘they can mate for hours apparently. However, i only
managed to film them for about five minutes before
snorkellers arrived, which seemed to disturb the
turtles. they separated and swam away.’
