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.
Yes! We have this tour available upon request, we can do a special itinerary for you in the
