Turtle sighting

I know you can see them at Turtle Bay, however in case we do not get the chance to go, where are the possible areas of turtle sightings and I don't mean just in the water?

Cheers

I came nose to nose with a turtle 30 yards in front of the Halekulani Hotel.

Both of us were quite startled.

He swam away faster than I did.

There are a family of 3 turtles I often see snorkeling in front ot the New Otani hotel on Sans Souci Beach. Also about 30 yards out.

You know, I have never seen a turtle at Turtle Bay!! Go figure. Use the link Umaga gave. Laniakea is the place to see turtles, not only in the water but on land. Just past Haleiwa going Waimea way.
