The Hawksbill Group

Hawksbill Group takes its name from the Hawksbill Turtle, one of the most beautiful and tenacious creatures in our ocean. For centuries the turtle has been hunted for its shell, but despite this has managed to thrive in its natural environment. As a child our founder, Bob Ferguson, swam with these turtles. Even as a young boy he was impressed with their beauty, gracefulness and focus as they swam and hunted. To help these turtles continue to live free and safe a portion of the firm’s fees go to the preservation of the Hawksbill Turtle.
