You will depart Port of Spain for the drive to the East of Trinidad to the village of Marura. The knowledgeable guides, who belong within the community, will take you on a walk to the beach where the turtles, both the endangered leatherback and hawksbill turtles, come for the ritual of nesting. You may even be able to assist with the tagging and recording of the leatherbacks. The turtles can be as long as 5 feet and you will be able to get very close to them.

Myself, my daughter and my granddaughter, had the most intriguing experience watching the turtles hatched their eggs. Our driver Mr. Errol Sinnan was phenomenal and engaged us in a very educational history of the turtles and their migration and nesting in Trinidad and Tobago.
I am quite pleased with the service that I have received from Viator and is looking forward to utilize their tours for other destinations in the future.
