Bucket List Adventures in Florida

Sea Turtles Hatching

This is something you have to see!

Sea turtle nesting season in Florida is a lot of fun to witness. Our guests enjoy exploring Ocean Park’s beach looking for giant sea turtles and covered egg nests. Ask us about our special turtle-friendly flashlights.

Taking part in nature’s magical nighttime adventures at our Melbourne Beach hotel is something you can check off your bucket list. Here are a couple of sea turtle facts.

  • Loggerhead and green sea turtles nest on Brevard County beaches from May through October.
  • Florida is the only state in the continental U.S. where leatherback turtles regularly nest.
  • Leatherbacks are typically the first to arrive on Florida beaches, followed by loggerheads in the spring, and green sea turtles in the summer.
  • Archie Carr National Wildlife Refuge is the site of the second largest Loggerhead nesting area in the world and is located just 5 miles south of Port d’Hiver!
