This is so cool! Here’s part of what the diver has to say about his meeting:
At one point he tries to bite my leg, I guess he smelt some shellfish which was in my pocket from the previous days water jetting. Maybe he was just being playful or curious, it’s quite likely he has lived on that platform for many years, that old boy will have met quite few divers in his time, some may have taken food for him. Whatever the reason that turtle took an interest in this particular diver, the timing, the footage, and the interaction made it a once in a lifetime experience.
