Take part in a sea turtle conservation project with this nighttime turtle watching experience- an evening you'll never forget!

Sea Turtle Conservation Experience

We'll pick you up from your hotel in Riviera Maya at around 8 pm and from there we'll travel for about an hour until we reach Xpu Ha Bay.

Once there, we'll get off the minibus and we'll meet a marine biologist who'll explain everything you need to know about the turtle conservation project. You'll also be given a brief summary of the activities that you'll carry out during the visit.

Next, we'll go to the beach with our guide and patrol the sand searching for turtles and their nests. Throughout the night you'll witness the incredible sight of how the turtles create their nests and you may even see the birth of a turtle.

This is a Sea Shepherd conservation project, and you'll be able to discover first-hand how these reptiles are cared for and you'll also be witness to how the baby turtles are released into the ocean.

After this unique experience, we'll leave the beach and you'll be offered a snack of chocolate cake, fruit, water and soft drinks. Then we'll get back on the minibus and return to your hotel in Riviera Maya at around 12:30 pm.
