From August until November we are able to help new born turtles get out of their nests and make their way to the ocean. So we are inviting you to participate in the Turtle Release Tour.By participating in the Turtle Release Tour, you are helping the sea turtle at the same time learning more about the said specie while enjoying yourself. Through the turtle release tour, you will have an opportunity to help and witness the baby sea turtle takes its first swim. You will have the chance choose and adopt a baby sea turtle then release it into the sea, its natural habitat.The Turtle Release Tour is a non-profit educational tour and is available in Cozumel from June to November every day of the week. Moreover, this is a sunset tour and requires low physical demand. The release of the baby turtles in collaboration with the Cozumel Conservation Project and the explanation workshop by an experienced biologist are the highlights of this tour. This tour can be arranged if you want to see marine turtles lay their eggs.We begin the tour at 5 in the afternoon when we gather you in the downtown area. Before the night tour embarks there will be a Marine Turtle Presentation, after that you will be invited to a unique opportunity to come and help release baby sea turtles to the natural waters of the Pacific.You will be guided by an experienced ecologist and will impart bits of knowledge about the different turtle species, their habitat, their behavior and how Cozumel Island protects the marine turtle nesting grounds as well as helping the turtles reproduce for over 15 years. From there, you will be transferred to the beach where you will release your adopted baby marine turtle to the ocean.The Turtle Conservation Project in Cozumel only runs 6 months a year. This is during the time when marine turtles lay their eggs and the babies hatch.This tour is truly good to take as this enables you to take part in an eco-activity and become aware of the environmental issues we face.
