Cabo Turtle Hatchery

Witness the miracle of life that unfolds in front of your eyes!

The wildlife in Cabo San Lucas is never on holiday! As the summer season begins, turtles start to invade the beaches of Baja California Sur, and you can be part of this miracle of life on this Cabo turtle release experience. 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 disappearing in the wide-open ocean. After only 45 days, the hatchlings will make their run to the sea. Only a few will survive and make it back one day to lay their eggs: our task is to raise the percentage of survival as much as possible by taking care of the nest, protecting them until birth, and helping them reach the ocean. We need your help – join us for an experience of a lifetime!

Safe and Fun

For comfort, safety, and the best Cabo Turtle Release Program experience, we travel in small groups.

Located just a few kilometers outside of Cabo San Lucas along the Pacific Ocean, this remote location offers the opportunity to escape the crowds on this Cabo turtle release experience. Enjoy a full immersion experience, especially if you decide to enroll 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. This time spent together will allow us to conduct environmental education activities as well as raise awareness of the necessity to protect endangered species such as turtles.

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 turtles is done in the early evening after we receive a 30-minute briefing about the story of the camp, the conservation work done, and lots of information about the turtles. Please note that during this time, as we get closer to the wintertime, chances are high to see the first Humpback Whales traveling south towards Cabo San Lucas.
