Acapulco Eco Tour Turtle Release Excursion Sightseeing Shore Trip

Eco and Wildlife tour in Acapulco

Tour Price : From $59.00 to $79.00 Duration : 6-7 hours Languages: English, French, Spanish When you participate in the Turtle Release Eco Tour, you are not only helping the sea turtle, you are able to learn about the species all while enjoying yourself. The Sea Turtle is making a comeback in the waters of Acapulco and you have the opportunity to help. You will choose a baby sea turtle that has been raised by the Turtle Conservation Program. You can adopt the turtle and then, through your efforts, release the baby into its natural habitat in the sea. As the baby takes its first swim in the natural waters of the Pacific, you will be there to witness this momentous occasion. This is truly a tour you can feel good about taking! Tour with private guide in Mexico. The Turtle releasing Camp is located in Barra Vieja, along the main coastal highway, Carretera Acapulco Pinotepa, kilometer 32. The turtle camp staff finds endangered sea turtle nests and bring the eggs to the camp, to incubate in a protected area safe from poachers and predators. When the baby turtles hatch, they make sure the hatchlings at least make it into the water, by taking them down to the ocean and releasing them in large groups so some have a chance of survival. Your family may participate in releasing the cute baby turtles. Each of our kids held a turtle briefly while waiting for the staff in preparation for release. They drew a line on the sand very close to the tide line and asked the kids to gently place the turtle over the line, facing the ocean. Then we stood silently watching the baby turtles make their way to the ocean and eventually carried away by the tide (no flash photography allowed). Excursion in Mexico. The children are told that the sea turtles are a protected species and only very few released would survive. They are also told that the turtles would eventually come back to the beaches were they were released to lay eggs. It is quite an emotional moment and you will be very happy that the kids are able to participate in an eco-activity and become aware of our environmental issues at such a young age.
