Notes:
The blurry ripple in the middle of the photo is the only shot I got of a Leatherback Sea Turtle that I spotted, and which was well seen by numerous people on the boat. A very large turtle with a leathery, ridged shell, and huge bulbous head. I missed the photo, and consequently this photo is hopeless for an ID, but I just wanted to log the sighting, as it was confirmed by our guide, and seen very clearly.
