Which sea turtles are the deepest divers?

hawksbill
leatherback
loggerhead
green
Leatherback turtles are one of the deepest diving marine animals. Individuals have been recorded diving to depths as great as 1,280 meters (4,200 ft). Such depths are unreachable for turtles with hard shells, as these would have been crushed by the pressure.
