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.
