I thought I’d take this opportunity to look back on some of the coolest under water photographs that I’ve taken of Hawaiian sea turtles over the past several years. I’ve encountered them in all kinds of interesting locations. Often, they like to hang around the rocks because it helps to give them camoflage from predators, but then there are times where I’ll encounter them completely out in the open over sandy areas too.
Sometimes one will pop it’s head up right after I’ve swum under a 6 foot wave at Pipeline. I’ve even encountered them in underwater sea caves. They are always very gentle beings, never displaying any hint of aggression. They are totally adorable creatures. These images here represent probably what are my 10 best images of Hawaiian Sea turtles. Enjoy!
