Reminder: This program is conducted under a state permit and viewing turtles should not be attempted without a permit holding guide. If you come across a turtle on the beach, please stay quiet and keep a respectful distance so you do not disturb the nesting process. Remember - Florida’s sea turtles are protected by the Endangered Species Act and the Marine Turtle Protection Act. It is illegal to disturb, harass, touch, or interfere with a sea turtle. Your presence on the beach at night may cause a mother turtle to abandon her nest, so it’s best to stay off local beaches after dark from March through October.
