Turtle Walks will go LIVE on May 1st @ 8 am

Turtle Walks are an amazing way to experience nature at its most primitive. Participants have the chance to view the egg-laying process of a loggerhead sea turtle while learning about their conservation. While the group enjoys an informative lecture about sea turtles, trained biologists will patrol the beach in search of the turtle.

Programs begin promptly at 9 pm and can go on until we spot a turtle laying her eggs. If a turtle is not spotted by 11 pm, we call it a night. There is no guarantee that the group will see a sea turtle.

Things you should know before you register:

  • A charge of $10/ticket (including ticketing fee) will be applied to secure your spot(s).*
  • This charge can be either refunded upon your arrival at the event or donated to Inwater Research Group’s (501c3 nonprofit) sea turtle conservation programs. Ticketing fees cannot be refunded.
  • Tickets may be canceled and charges refunded (sans ticketing fee) 30 days before your event. Tickets may not be canceled less than 30 days before your event.
  • If you cannot attend the program, your ticket charges will automatically be donated.
  • You may only reserve up to 6 tickets.
  • Children under 5 are not permitted. Guests who bring children under 5, including infants, will be turned away and registration fees will be donated to IRG.
  • Guests must be able to walk up to a mile on the beach.
  • The program occurs rain or shine. Participants should expect the program to be offered regardless of weather unless they have received a call before the program.
  • You must receive an email confirmation to be registered.
  • No flashlights, flash photography, or cell phone photos are permitted on the beach.
  • Please look at the number of tickets available for each night. Please do not register part of your group in hopes that more will be available upon request.
