Know More about this tour
Departing Port of Spain at 6.30pm, drive through several villages towards the northeast coast. You'll arrive at Matura Beach at approximately 8pm. Here a small group of villagers whopatrol the beach during the egg-laying season await us.We are guided along the beach to view the nesting turtles in the moonlight, well away from all houses it is just you and the turtles!
Weighing up to 1,500 pounds and measuring 3 meters across, these giant creatures have undergone few evolutionary changes in their 150-million year history. The female turtle swims thousands of miles, returning to the beach of her birth to layher eggs in the sand, a moving 2 hour process. Often you will see more than one turtle and if youre lucky the chance to see baby turtles hatching and quickly running towards the sea. Each nest contains approx. eighty eggs from which only two-three mature turtles remain.
Depending on the arrival of the turtles, arrive back in Port of Spain at approx. midnight. Basic covered waiting and toilet facilities are provided.
