I didn't know what kind it was, the divemaster said it might have been a different type of turtle. It was just sitting there for awhile and I saw two other people looking at it in the tunnel. I thought it might have been a grouper at first and I wanted to get up close to one. It was much nicer to see a turtle since I've only ever seen smaller ones before.That’s one of the resident hawksbills. There are a few in the northern part of Palm Beach County primarily around Jupiter, Juno Beach & Palm Beach. You rarely see them much further south of that. Here’s another one I’ve seen multiple times. He has a distinctive broken part of his carapace just above his left rear flipper. I saw him Sat 8/21/21 on Loggerhead Reef.
