STANDARD TURTLE NESTING

Groups of up to 10 people gather at a dispatching point of the hotel, 15 minutes to 1 hour prior to your tour time, depending on the sector of the beach assigned by the Park Service to your group. Some sectors of the beach are further away and require more time to arrive. Groups have to wait their turn for a tracker who is on the beach with a radio to report a turtle. Then, up to five groups (of up to 10 per group) are dispatched per turtle. Read more…
