    Hawksbill Turtle Close Encounter

    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.

    I once saved a man in Wichita just to watch him dive...(inventor)

    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.
    Thanks,

    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?
