Cabo Turtle Hatchery Tour
The wildlife in Cabo San Lucas is never on holidays! As the summer season begins turtles start to invade the beaches of Baja California Sur and you can be part of this miracle of live that unfolds in front of your eyes. Thousands of Olive Ridley and Black Turtles come to shore to lay their load of eggs deep in the sand before returning to the sea and disappear in the wide open Ocean. Doesn’t take too long, around 45 day before the hatchlings will make their run to the Ocean as well. Only a few will survive and make it back one day to lay their eggs: our task is raise the percentage of survival as much as possible, by taking care of the nest and protect them until the day of birth and helping them reaching the Ocean.
The place we will be going to is located just a few Km out of Cabo San Lucas along the Pacific Ocean, a remote location that offers the opportunity to escape the crowds of Los Cabos and enjoy a nature full immersion experience, especially should you decide to enrol in the nesting or combo activity which includes an overnight stay under the stars.
All the tours are guided by marine biologists that work for the Mexican non-profit civil association ASUPMATOMA. The conservation project is almost 20 years old which will ensure a safe and educational learning experience, the usual way of Cabo Trek making learning fun. The time spent together will allow us to conduct environmental education activities as well as raise awareness of the necessity to protect Nature and the endangered species such as the turtles are.
Cabo Turtle Release Tour: From the 1st of September till the 15th of December
This tour will take about 4 hours to complete. The release of the turtles is done in the early evening (04:00pm) after we had a 30 minutes briefing about the story of the camp, the conservation work done and many information about the turtles.
Please note that during this time, as we get closer to the winter time, chances are high to see the first Humpback Whales travelling south towards Cabo San Lucas.
