What is this sea turtle doing?

What is this loggerhead sea turtle doing? We saw him perform this unusual behaviour for a while, before diving out of sight. Could it be mating with another sea turtle? We have observed a somewhat similar behaviour involving two mating turtles, but both were partly visible at the surface. In this case we are totally ignorant.
