Off the coast of Oahu, beneath the surface of the waves, a turtle cleaning station brings together sea creatures of all shapes and sizes. On the best days, I’ve seen over eleven turtles gathered here, ranging in size from massive grandfather turtles to tiny baby turtles. In this instance, the turtle separated from the coral structure at the bottom of the reef and drifted to the top for a breath of air. Instead of surfacing myself, I fought the urge to breath and stared up at the sun, past the turtle as the sun rays met my gaze in the shallower waters.
