Turtle overdose

At some shore dive spots you can encounter a lot of turtles at once. There are two kinds of turtles you can spot at curaƧao, the green turtle and the hawksbill turtle. In this movie of our dive you see them both. The green turtle is more rounded from his shield and head. The hawksbill turtle has sharper edges at his shield and a sharp nose. When we film them we don’t use a pole for the camera or zoom in. We make sure we have eye contact with the turtle so he can decide if we can approach him close. This gives both a good feeling and the moment is always special.
