Loggerheads, Kemp’s Ridley, Greens, and Leatherback sea turtles all nest on coastal Georgia’s beaches. Learn about the amazing lives of these sea turtles. You’ll get to discuss anatomy, natural adaptations, why sea turtles cry, natal beaches, and Tybee Island’s conservation efforts. Afterward, head down to the Coastal Gallery to feed the visiting loggerhead sea turtle. Recommended for ages six and above.
It’s sea turtle nesting season and we’re asking our guests to help keep our beaches clean and safe for our sea turtle mommies. Please clean up any trash in your area before your leave the beach, be sure to fill in any holes you make and remove all of your personal property. Be a Tybee Island Clean Beach Volunteer and Fight Dirty Tybee!
Mermaid Cottages has vintage and historic cottages available throughout the summer and we’re happy to help you select just the right one for you. For instance, ATLANTIC 2 circa 1930 is located directly on the beach and it’s pet friendly. It’s a classic family beach cottage with a large wraparound porch. Guests love the wonderful south beach and ocean views and the breezes coming off the beach. It’s also right next to our ATLANTIC 1 circa 1930, so this is a great location for two or more families who like to vacation together.
Always book direct with Mermaid Cottages and avoid those pesky booking fees charged by third party sites.
