Turtle Walks

July - October

Price per Person:

                    30€   or  33OO CVE 


We will take you to the nesting beaches of the Loggerhead Turtles on Sal. You will be escorted with an English speaking guide to watch them come up at night and lay their nests in their natural habitat. Experience the wonder of life and nature up close. 

 

Through the years of experience we have in turtle conservation we ensure there is as little disturbance to the nesting turtles as possible. The measure we are taking include:

  • Taking just small groups of people to the beaches (only up to 8 with the guide)
  • Using red light only which does not harm the turtles eyes

Respectful contact with the Turtles is our highest priority!

We will pick you up at your hotel/residence from around 8 in the evening. The whole trip will take around 2 and a half hours. The time and duration can be customised if nessesery but may incure additional cost.

 

Like real Rangers we will walk along the high tide line to look for turtle tracks. The tracks can lead us to a nesting turtle or a previous activity. During the walk we will introduce you to all the changes and challenges marine turtles have to deal nowadays, the situation in Cabo Verde, and discuss what changes can be made for improvement. We will try our best to answer all your questions.  

 

Since we encountering nature here, we can't give any promise to see a turtle. The chances, especially in the middle of the season, are extremly high, but as the Loggerhead Turtles nest from dusk till dawn, in every weather or tide, we simply can't predict their behavior.

Independenty of that we can promise you an informative experience, with a unique insight in to the life of Loggerhead Turtles that are nesting here in Sal.
