Frequently Asked Questions
What are the chances that I will get to see turtles?
Turtles appear throughout the day on nearly every dive trip, but they are wild animals, so there is no way to guarantee that they will show up. When you encounter a turtle, please make sure you do not get too close. Hawaiian green sea turtles are a federally protected species and deserve our respect.
