Sea Turtle Nesting Season Info
Sea Turtle Nesting Season on Longboat Key is May 1 – October 31 in Florida each year. The beaches of Sarasota County are home to the most loggerhead turtle nests on Florida’s west coast – 42% – and Florida beaches are the number one place for sea turtle nests in North America. Loggerhead sea turtles are classified as a threatened species. More rarely, endangered green sea turtles and Kemp’s ridley sea turtles also make their nests on our beaches.
We are proud to do our part in protecting sea turtles by turning out all gulf front patio lights during sea turtle season. Guests should keep all window coverings and drapes closed after dark and refrain from using lanterns, flashlights, or fishing lamps on the beach. Fireworks are not allowed on the beach during sea turtle season or at any time. If you encounter a nesting sea turtle or sea turtle hatchlings making their way to the ocean, remain quiet and observe from a distance. We thank you for doing your part to protect sea turtles while visiting Casa Del Mar.
More Ways to View Sea Turtles
There are many opportunities for guided sea turtle viewings, though reservations are necessary and turtle walks fill up fast. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission provides a comprehensive list of captive turtle viewing sites where sea turtles are rehabilitated. We would be delighted for you to make your home away from home with us as you set out on your sea turtle viewing vacation adventure.
