Experience the Sea Turtles

Watch the Nesting Turtles Hatch! Marenas is honored to be a nesting habitat for three species of protected sea turtles; The Loggerhead, Green, and Leatherback turtles. Annually, beginning in April and extending through early November, the native sea turtles come to nest on our beaches. Sea turtles lay around 100 eggs in a nest and lay between 3 and 7 nests during the summer nesting season. If you are lucky you may be able to see them hatch.
