Baby Sea Turtle Release





An exciting opportunity to interact with live sea turtles that is only available to a select few people.  Puerto Vallarta is one of the only places in the world where sea turtles rise from their ocean environment and make their way onto the beach where they will build a nest and lay their eggs.  This special place along the beaches of Nuevo Vallarta is protected by law, but unfortunately natural predators don’t know about these laws, and the eggs, nests, and baby sea turtles are subjected to attacks from birds, iguanas and other predators, and only a very few of them survive the journey into the sea.





Now you can join us on our mission to help the baby turtles survive their trek from the nest to the sea, and ensure that the next generation of beautiful sea turtles is strong and healthy.

Your tour begins with a discussion of the turtles and the importance of their protection by your expert Biologist guides, who have been featured on Animal Planet and in National Geographic Magazine.  We will visit the nursery, nests, and the turtle camp.  We will see all the baby turtles that were born during the day, then walk along the beach looking for females laying eggs.  At the end of the tour, we will release the baby sea turtles and help them get safely to their natural ocean habitat.

Schedule: Every Night between August 11th and February 1st from 9:00 PM to Midnight.  Exact pick-up time depends on the location of your hotel, but will be specified on your ticket.

Cruise Passengers: Upon request, we can do a special itinerary for you in the afternoon so you can do this tour, but it will not include the searching for females, as this only happens at night.

Duration: 3 Hours Approximately.
