We frequently encounter these beautiful protected sea creatures during our Volcano Tour with pickup from the Kona side. This Green Sea turtle (honu) is basking in the sun on a black sand beach in Hawaii. If you look closely, you can see a tag on the turtle’s front right side. One must stay away several feet from this strictly protected species so make sure you bring a good zoom lens to capture some close up shots.
