Sea Turtle Watching

6 h
About this activity
Transfer to the port of Cañas, where your boat is waiting for you to take you out to Isla Cañas. On the short boat ride you will enjoy the mangroves and the sunset over the Pacific Ocean. Cañas Island with its 14km long beach is the most important nesting site for sea turtles on Panama’s Pacific Coast. From July to January thousands of sea turtles of five different species arrive to the coast of Isla Cañas to nest. Once you arrive to Cañas Island you will enjoy a traditional dinner – fried fish and plantains – prepared by a local family. After dinner, you will hop on a horse cart and start exploring the beaches of Cañas Island together with your guide, in order to look for the sea turtles to arrive and nest. Once you spot a turtle, your guide will take you closer so you can observe in detail how the impressive animal digs a hole in the beach and lays its eggs.
