    There are lots of types of sea turtles, but commonly, they live near coastal waters, like in the Gulf of Mexico. However, they do migrate throughout the year, and have been known to go out into the open sea. The average depth of coastal waters is about 200 meters. One of the things you have to remember is that sea turtles are reptiles, and have lungs. That means that they need to get air in order to live. A resting or sleeping sea turtle can stay under the water for 4-7 hours, but if they’re engaged in an act that requires strenous activity, like fishing, they can only stay down for a few minutes.

    So, sea turtles probably stick around in the 200 meter range.
