Be part of this incredible 3 hours experience of digging and releasing a few just born baby sea turtles, while you ride there will be informative commentary about the sea turtles from the moment they are born and run to the ocean and until the time they come back to the beach many years later to lay eggs. This service includes Round-trip transport from the lobby of your hotel in Ixtapa or Zihuatanejo to the turtle farm, the opportunity to dig and release baby sea turtles and also a cold drink a the turtle farm.



On this 3 hours experience, you will be driven north west of Zihuatanejo, the drive will take about 40 minutes to get to the turtle Farm, in the farm we will select the nest that is hatching and you will have the chance to dig a few baby turtles out of the nest, you will be provide with one globe per person to dig the turtles out, you then will have to put each one of the turtles in a small plastic container that we will be giving you in which the just born sea turtles will remain for about 40 minutes until they wake up.

The turtles will remain for about 40 minutes in the container, during this time we will provide you with a cold drink (beer or bottle of water or soda or a margarita). After 40 minutes the sea turtles will be more active and ready to run, so you will take them to the wet sand about 20 feet away from the ocean and as soon as they are put in the wet sand they will run to the ocean. We will wait until they all run to the ocean, during the whole process you can take pictures but remember not to use flash because the baby turtles get disoriented and will not know which way to run.

The turtles will be release around sunset time so that the birds which are one of the main predators are not there to eat them.

After all the turtles have made it to the ocean you will be taken back to your hotel.

      Departure Point:

      The pickup will be at the lobby of your hotel, in case you are staying at a hotel where they don’t let us come to the lobby, you will have to come on the street, just outside your hotel and that is where we will pick you up.

      Departure Time: 3:30pm from de lobby of your hotel in Zihuatanejo and 4pm from the lobby of your hotel in Zihuatanejo (August to March).

      After you book this tour, please send us an email with the name of your hotel so that we can inform you exact pick up time.

      I also recommend you to book this tour at the begging of your vacation, because sometimes the turtles hatch one day later, so if you book this tour at the end you might not have another day.

      So for example if you book for a Monday and the Baby Turtles don’t hatch, they will do that on Tuesday and we will inform you about in the morning of Monday.
