Turtle Walk

Turtle Walk Information:

Sebastian Inlet State Park conducts park ranger guided educational sea turtle walks.  These turtle walks offer you a possibility to witness a loggerhead sea turtle lay her eggs, cover and disguise her nest, crawl down the beach and swim away in to the Atlantic Ocean.  Turtle walks are five nights a week, Friday through Tuesday, during the months of June and July.  The program starts at 9 PM and may last until 1 AM.  Unlike any other permitted sea turtle walk offered in Florida you may walk up to three miles while searching for a sea turtle.

 

Reservations are required for turtle walks.  All of Sebastian Inlet State Park’s turtle walk reservations are made online.  Beginning on May 1, online turtle walk reservations can be made by clicking http://www.fsispturtlewalk.org/  

There is a $10.00 donation per person to reserve a space for a park ranger guided turtle walk.
