DescriptionCape Verde Islands hold the third largest community of Loggerhead sea turtle in the world and Boavista receives over 90% of them along its 55 kilometers of white Sandy beach. From June until October we find this spectacle down the beach in the evening where big females come to lay their eggs inside the special nests all made by themselves. This beauty is protected by the government with massive support of the locals who engages the conservancy project every year. Nowadays, there are many associations and ONGs with international support who help the conservancy and protection program. There is a limit of tours and people per night per beach to not disturb the turtle processes, (each operator needs to inform how many guests each time). Immerse yourself in this adventure and get an experience that will last a life time. During our tour you’ll experience the turtle: - preparing very accurately the nest, - laying very carefully the eggs - covering the eggs thoroughly with sand - returning to the sea very quietly Enjoy our Turtle expeditions led by trained staff who love these amazing endangered creatures. 3€ from each booking goes to Protected Areas Conservancy Program!!!
