Rescuing a turtle in Palmarola - by Luigi Ardire

It's with great pleasure that we publish an article about rescuing a sea turtle in the waters of Palmarola, written by Luigi Ardire. Grazie Luigi!

On September 16th, 2014 we were coming back from Palmarola (off the Island of Ponza) after a wonderful dive at the Cathedral site. I was at the helm of the Nettuno (Ponza Diving Center's boat) and on board there were our guests and the other members of the staff: Andrea (diving centre manager and Captain of the boat), Daniela and Francesco (Instructors) and Ciprian (Divemaster).

All of a sudden, I spot a familiar shape on the surface, not far away from us, and I recognise her immediatly: a sea turtle!
