Diving Club Paradise House Reef (Palawan, Philippines)

By Leonard Ho - Posted Oct 25, 2013 08:00 AM
This video contains remarkable high-def underwater footage of the reef life at the Club Paradise Dive Resort in the heart of the Coral Triangle. If you love sea turtles, you'll love (or maybe hate) this video.

The video contains footage of divers hand-feeding and touching a protected sea turtle, which the commentator acknowledges as a discouraged activity (and may be subject to severe penalties in some locations).  The divers in the video clearly demonstrate no malice or reckless behavior that can be construed as turtle harassment.  The human-turtle interaction borders on magical.  Nonetheless, it's best to leave sea turtles alone no matter how cute they are ... and this particular sea turtle is pretty damn cute.
