Hawaii is the home to five species of sea turtles. Olive ridleys, loggerheads, and leatherbacks are usually only encountered in deep offshore waters. But it’s common for snorkelers and divers on all the islands to see the honu (green sea turtle) in near shore waters. Green sea turtles, however, nest in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands, a remote protected area where they thrive. Come discover Hawaii’s Sea Turtles!
