Turtle Walks at
John U. Lloyd Beach State Park

John U. Lloyd Beach State Park holds turtle walks to view nesting loggerhead turtles on Wednesday and Friday evenings in June and July.

Turtle walks last between 1-3 hours, depending on when a nesting turtle is sighted.

Reservations for turtle walks are taken beginning May 1. Call 954/923-2833. Each turtle walk group is limited to 25 people with no age minimum. However, each participant must be able to walk at least 300 yards in soft sand.

The turtle walk program begins at 9 p.m. and ends around midnight. The evening starts with an orientation and presentation around a campfire at the Sea Grape Pavilion.

The program includes a Ranger talk and a 20-minute slide or PowerPoint presentation, followed by a question and answer period. During this time, a scout is out searching for a nesting loggerhead.

Normal state park admission fees apply: $6 for up to 8 persons in a vehicle, $4 for single-occupant vehicles.
