These walks, which are authorized under a special permit issued by the State of Florida, provide a possible opportunity for you to witness a nesting loggerhead sea turtle in a safe and legal manner. Each turtle walk will begin with an educational presentation on sea turtle biology and conservation in Florida Oceanographic Society’s classroom, followed by the opportunity, if nature cooperates, for guests to go out on the beach to observe the nesting behavior of a loggerhead sea turtle. To ensure an enjoyable experience, space in these walks is extremely limited. Please carefully read all of the below information before registering.
Registration is required.
If you would prefer to book a “single-family” sea turtle walk for 5 or less guests, please contact Dr. Zack Jud, Director of Education, at email@example.com.
Program Fee: $35.00 per participant
Age restrictions: Participants must be at least 10 years of age. Guests under 18 must be accompanied by an adult guardian.
Reminder: These programs are conducted under a state permit. Conducting guided sea turtle walks on your own or disturbing sea turtles is against the law. Please keep all lights off while on the beach during sea turtle nesting season, including flashlights, red lights, cell phones and cameras. Don’t forget to keep a respectful distance from nesting females or hatchlings.
