Swimming With Honu (Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle)

After getting to see several Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles on our honeymoon we were delighted to actually get the chance to swim side-by-side by one.

We actually found this turtle (presumably the same one) three consecutive days. The first time, I was snorkeling and suddenly was face to face with the turtle (and camera-less!).

Then the next day we found her again and took a ton of photos. And then on the day before we had to depart the Big Island, Stacia found the turtle once more. The turtle swam underneath her!
