Notes:
Seen on a whale watching cruise. Photo by Robin Agarwal, who was standing next to me. We both spotted the turtle. She lifted her camera, I lifted my binoculars. After two breathes, it was gone. We waited and searched for another fifteen minutes, but it never resurfaced. Robin kindly consented to my using her photo for this record.
