On this adventure, we will visit El Verde Camacho Sea Turtle Sanctuary, an important nesting site for sea turtles, located on a beautiful pristine beach just 20 km north of Mazatlan. This protected nature reserve is comprised of extensive wetlands and El Verde Estuary, an important coastal ecosystem surrounded by mangrove forests, and home to outstanding biodiversity including a myriad of coastal birds, fish, shrimp, an even a small population of American crocodiles.
Upon our arrival we will enjoy a light but tasty continental breakfast while listening to a short lecture on sea turtle ecology and conservation by our guides. Then, we will meet our local guide at the beach and get ready to release sea turtle hatchlings into the sea for the first time. After this exciting experience, we will take a boat or kayak ride to explore the mangrove channels of the estuary.
During the journey there are great opportunities for wildlife photography, and if we are lucky enough we might even spot the elusive American crocodiles that inhabit these inland waters. After our boat or kayak adventure, our local guides will take us on a tour through the sea turtle camp and explain their activities and conservation efforts. Then we will have some free time to relax or walk along the beach before returning to Mazatlán.
Join us for this exciting experience releasing baby turtles into the sea, and take part in conservation efforts!
Note: Depending on conditions, we will either take a boat or a kayak while on this tour.
