This tour is conducted around the tide cycle – high tide and mid tide up are the best times to see the turtles. Nature dictates your experience and return time – the females usually come up during the night, although there are no guarantees. The tour will return later if babies are hatching. Note that nesting turtles or hatchlings cannot be guaranteed on any tour though in 2017 70% of our guests experienced a sea turtle encounter.
This tour is not advised for people who are pregnant, or who have existing neck or back injury. Sos Nicaragua reserves the right to cancel or vary trips subject to weather or sea conditions.
