Nov – Feb Annually
St Lucia Turtle Tour Season takes you on a magical and life-changing experience, to watch one of nature’s most amazing circles of life, the egg laying process of the leatherback and loggerhead sea turtles. These turtles’ instinct is so amazing, to think that they are returning to their “place of birth”, after years at sea, to lay the next batch of eggs. St Lucia Turtle Tours run after sunset because the turtles generally emerge from the sea to lay their eggs after dark.
