Turtle season is here and runs from May 1 to October 31. The Cape San Blas beaches are prime nesting grounds for Loggerhead and Greenback turtles. During the first have of the season, pregnant sea turtles drag themselves up on the Gulf County beaches to lay their eggs. During the second half of the season, thousands of tiny hatchlings hatch and make their way to the Gulf of Mexico! If you see a square area marked off by warning tape, it's a turtle next! Please stay clear and keep your dog clear! If you take a walk in the evening or early morning, you might be lucky enough to see some!
