Up to 20 large green sea turtles can be seen during a dive at Abu Dabbab near Marsa Alam in the the red Sea in Egypt. Whats great for underwater photographers; the water is shallow and it allows a diver / photographer to rise and decent with the sea turtles when they surface for air and shot the perfect picture.

Hello Salil
Yes those are Remoras undernieth the sea turtle. Sometimes the sea turtles try to get rid of them and if they do they sometimes hook on to a divers tank...
