Summer is a great season for Sea Turtle sightings!
During the summer months, sea turtles swim ashore to nest on our beautiful beaches.
We do see turtles year round in our waters, but this nesting activity increases our chances of spotting them on shore as well!
Just last week we witnessed leatherback turtles hatching from the South Beach right here in Jolly Harbour. Below is a picture of the eggs after the hatching. We didn't take any flash photography of the actually hatchlings as they use the reflections of the moon to guide them to the ocean.
