This was the second day of checkout dives for Class #4 (half of them anyway). It was a nice dive with the exception of a new-found, annoying friend. It was kind of cute at first but he would not leave us alone the whole dive. Here are some pics. 1 thru 16 are this dive. Saw lots of pretty tropical fish, angel fish, puffer fish, etc. Saw a sea turtle. Very nice dive!

On the surface, we saw a huge sea turtle surface about 20 feet or so from the boat. Probably about 4-5 feet across. After the dive we moved the boat over to a bed of floating sea weed. We hopped back out in snorkel gear and checked out the fish hanging out underneath. We also took some time to clean out some garbage that had collected in it (bottles, bottle caps, and other trash). As we were swimming around, our friend showed up. We could tell it was the same guy because of the injuries on his side. Dang! He found us! :-P
