Turtle and Shark and Tuna, oh my!

black tip reef shark, big crab, green turtle!!!!!!!!, fish, lionfish, lots of huge morays, leopard moray, tuna Entry was rough, shallow water w stormy waves. Not such a nice reef, but saw a black tip reef shark on entry, and FINALLY a big green turtle on our way out. Saw it swim just under us to its resting spot!! Also big eels along the reef. Frustrating exit w/low vis and air.
