Turtle Nesting Night Tour

Turtle Nesting Night Tour

Location

Samara Adventure Company

Description

Camaronal beach is home to the nests of three of the seven species of sea turtles in the world: the Olive Ridley, Leatherback, and Hawksbills Black. All three of these species have been declared endangered. The protection of these sea turtles’ precious natural environment – a non-developed beach- is an ongoing project. Bright lights and noise can cause the turtles to turn back to the sea before laying their eggs. That is why we ask that you wear dark clothing and refrain from using cameras. The turtles nest at Camaronal all year round, but in bigger numbers from June until first days of January. This tour goes during the night and you will experience the process when turtles are laying eggs and sometimes during hatchings too.
