This iReport is part of an assignment:
Hawaiian Sea Turtle
So when I got my Lifeproof case for my iPhone, I was able to start snapping pictures of them underwater! This particular turtle was sneaky. Me and a friend found a really secluded beach and went snorkeling in a shallow lagoon--it was just us and about 3 or 4 turtles. While I was busy trying to get pictures of one turtle, I caught something out of the corner of my eye, turned around, and saw another turtle sneaking up behind me! The rule is that you shouldn't come within 15 feet of any turtles in Hawaii, but when they come up on you without you knowing, there's not much you can do besides what I did--which was to scream underwater and start swimming away as fast as I could! It was great to have some time with just us and them....great beach!
