Baby Sea Turtle Season in Galapagos

Baby Sea Turtle

As we enter the month of April green sea turtles begin to hatch in the Galapagos Islands.  The Galapagos Green Turtle is a subspecies of the green sea turtle.  Prime nesting season is from January to March and eggs hatch after a two-month incubation.  Unlike the famous Giant Tortoise of the Galapagos who live on land, the Galapagos Green Turtle lives their life at sea.

For those visiting the Galapagos on a Galapagos Cruise Gardner Bay on Española is one of the most common places that visitors encounter young turtles.  If you are staying on Santa Cruz Island you can encounter hatchlings at Tortuga Bay and Bachas Beach.
