Take a Guided Sea Turtle Walk at Sebastian Inlet State Park

By: Kevin Mims


If you are interested in sea turtles – Loggerheads, especially – make sure to plan a trip to Sebastian Inlet State Park this summer.

During the months of June and July, visitors have the chance to take part in nightly ranger-led tours along the beach at Sebastian Inlet State Park, with a presentation kicking off the walk. Typically, a scout will go out during the presentation and locate a nesting turtle – and if one is found, the tour will go directly to that location. If one is not located, the entire group will embark on a sea turtle treasure hunt of sorts, looking for a nest over a 1.5 mile stretch. Be prepared to walk up to a total of three miles during the tour.

Reservations are required for the guided walks. Make sure to get a spot early as possible as they will book up quickly.
