The Hatchling Release program at Loggerhead Marinelife Center is a unique experience that allows our visitors to learn about sea turtles and the nesting and hatching process. The program begins with an after-hours experience to view our current patients in our outdoor Sea Turtle Hospital, followed by a presentation and ends with a trip to the beach to see LMC staff release sea turtle hatchlings into the ocean.
Hatchling Releases are $18 per person or $16 per person for our LMC members. Walk-ins are a rate of $20, and a spot is not guaranteed. All individuals, including children, are required to pre-register online to reserve their spot. Children must be 8 years or older to attend a hatchling release and all participants must be able to walk up to half a mile.
