Watch sea turtles emerge from the surge and make their way to our shores to lay their eggs in the sand and months later see the brave hatchlings make the long nighttime journey from their nest to the safety of the sea. Spaces are limited and all reservations must be made in advance, so sign up early by contacting the EAG Group.
