What the heck is it?

Images: 

I think it is some sort of mollusk, perhaps a nudibranch, but have no clue beyond that.

Thw critter was swimming by rowing with the two yellow tipped appendages.

It was found near the surface during a safty stop and is between nickle and dime sized.

I think it's a snail/slug

Specifically, it's probably a pteropod:

I hope this helps you figure it out.
