I spotted this huge Loggerhead lumbering through the reef on Sunday afternoon, May 10. I'd say he's 3.5 to 4 feet, by far the biggest turtle I've ever seen. At the 1:00 mark, and again at 1:36, I swim into the frame near him and you can get a good idea of just how big this guy was.

Yes he was! And he didn't mind us one bit. He never swam away or even flinched!

WOW!

Question - was that another one in the background along about the 43 second mark?

AG - yes, the one in the background is the giant Loggerhead. The little Green turtle that stole the camera at 0:43 just happened to come along while we were swimming with Turtlezilla.

It could be very scary diving at the reef with Turtlezilla in the neighborhood.

Very cool Dolfnfan! Always love your videos. You have not taken my suggestion though of the boogie boarding fins. They would help you immensely.

Hi there, P'kid. I do plan on trying fins again. I just need to do some consumer research first to pick out exactly what I want.
