Where to See
There is no better place to see nesting sea turtles in the U.S. than Florida's Atlantic Coast. Sea turtle nesting grounds are limited exclusively to the Southeast region of the U.S. They extend from the Florida Keys to Virginia on the Atlantic Coast, and from Texas through Florida.
Adult sea turtles are sizable; even the smallest weighs between 200 and 300 pounds. The opportunity to closely approach such a large endangered
creature on its own grounds, without the slightest
danger, is remarkable.
Join A Guided Turtle Walk
Why join a guided turtle watch? Because it's one of Florida's most unforgettable
experiences. Everyone, especially Floridians, should go on a turtle watch at least once.
The majority of turtle watch programs are on Florida's Atlantic
coast, which has the greatest concentration of nests. The beaches
in the Melbourne area are the most heavily visited.
