Not sure if this turtle was curious, didn't see me, or just didn't care. Video shot just before our safety stop at Columbia Deep in Cozumel.

Totally cool Scubagal! Not much to see on the bottom there though.

Pretty cool! I had one try to sit on my head this summer. The whole time I was thinking don't crap, don't crap, don't crap.

HEY NOW!
That's enough from you two.

I really think it was drunk, I don't know what it takes to get a turtle drunk but this guy had one too many.

Some how I doubt the turtle was drunk! It was a little frisky tho.

It's okay Packrman. We can keep your secret.

Packrman, was it Tom or DD that got goosed by the turtle on the DC-3 night dive during the '13 Blackbeard's cruise while lining up a lionfish shot?

That was DD. There was a little pucker factor happening there. I know I just about drowned laughing at him.
If I remember right, Tom was on the boat with the girls and rum punch.

Isn't that the dive that Dave P. got violated by the turtle?

It could be worse. You could have been diving Africa and that could have been a close encounter with an amorous Hippo.
