Sea turtles on Tybee Island

Sea Turtle Season on Tybee Island, GA, is here!

Sea turtles on Tybee Island

Welcome to Tybee Island,
home of nesting sea turtle mamas!

Just in time for Mother’s Day, sea turtle mamas are coming back to Tybee to nest!

Every year sea turtles come back to Tybee to lay their magical eggs, and Mermaid Cottages is a huge supporter of these hardworking moms.

You can help too! Stay in a Mermaid vacation rental and every sip of our rich delicious Mermaid Bliss (#MMMBliss) coffee helps sea turtles on Tybee and around the world!! 

YOU can be Mermazing, too ~ our coffee is available for purchase so you can share the love! 

Every stay at a Mermaid Cottage and every sip you take of Mermaid Morning Bliss helps Tybee sea turtles… and sea turtles around the world! 

With each small batch, hand-roasted bag, we donate a portion to help the NESTS project here on Tybee Island with the Tybee Marine Science Center (plus we donate our time watching turtle nests!) and the Georgia Sea Turtle Center!  

Be a hero and buy a bag for yourself AND take some home for Mermazing gifts!
 Tybee had 23 (!) sea logger nests last Turtle Season!
We love supporting these sweet babies and their moms in any way we can. 

For your first wake up on Tybee! 

We make it easy ~ and philanthropical ~ to wake up on Tybee in a Mermaid Cottage. Your first wake up on Tybee will be filled with fresh, salty ocean air AND the enticing aroma of our freshly brewed coffee
                              You’re welcome!
                              And thank YOU!
