turtles night watching IN MORE DETAILS
We´ll arrive at 21:15 to Xpu Ha Bay. A guide will greet you and give you a brief explanation about the sea turtle project along with the instructions and itinerary of the night. After that you will join our staff as they patrol Xpu-Hu Bay; the beach where the wonders of nature await. We will walk on the beach searching for a sea turtle. If we find one we will witness the turtle making the nest, deliver the eggs, cover the nest and return to the sea. Approximately 60 days later the baby turtles are born and if you are lucky you will go on to observe turtles hatch and fight their way into the ocean. The fact that we are patrolling the beach makes an enormous difference in the preservation of these marvelous creatures. Tours runs for approximately 3-4 hours. Estimated returning time 00:30
