Sea Turtles Featured in
The most popular sea turtles in Cabo San Lucas, such as Leatherbacks, Ridleys, and Hawksbills, are also endangered species. The unique feature of these reptiles is that they always return to their native breeding grounds to lay eggs. So every year from July through December, you are sure to observe the turtles nesting in Cabo San Lucas. The youngsters hatch in 45 days and face the challenging race to the ocean.
Wildlife conservation programs organize turtle release tours between late August and early December for those who want to witness this wonder of nature and help the babies survive their way to the ocean. The trips start at dawn around 4 am and last for three hours.
