Summer of the Sea Turtle

Enter Title

Where in the world would you go for
the best Sea Turtle encounters?

Beginning in May and running through summer to mid fall, Palm Beach is the place for Loggerheads, Hawksbills ( like this one at right), and Greens.

The beaches of their birth ( hatching) are in the genetic memory of these turtles, and the top turtle nesting locations for divers tend to be most concentrated around the Breakers Reef area off of the Island of Palm Beach. However, from Delray Beach to Jupiter Island, the turtles are found throughout this huge expanse of reef line.

While turtles can be found literally anywhere on these reef tracts, the crown area up on top tends to offer the best combination of grazing and resting areas. On the 40 foot deep crowns of Breakers Reef, it is not uncommon to see more than 10 sea turtles along the crown on one single dive!
