Understanding diving behavior in sea turtles is critical for predicting the risks they face and is necessary in the formulation of effective management plans. Many recent studies have suggested that oceanographic features may influence diving behavior and thus diving patterns even in the same species may differ regionally. Hawksbill sea turtles usually spend the internesting interval close to the nesting beach, resting on coral reefs in shallow water (
