Default Sea Turtles

Anyone been seeing a bunch of small turtles 20-30 feet from the beach lately. I saw 3 when I was down over the weekend but might have been the same one. What kind are they?

Which beach? There were some near Portofino on Pensacola Beach last week that went the wrong way and some got run over. If they are sea turtles, call Florida Fish and Wildlife on the Florida side. If they don't head toward the gulf, they will not likely make it.

They were in the gulf in waist deep water. Their shell was 2 feet across

I misunderstood the location. Several species here - Loggerheads, Greens, Kemp's Ridley. Without seeing the shell and/or head, difficult to tell. Maybe someone saw them and can tell you.

Saw one about the same size last Saturday while the girls were playing in the surf near the Margaritaville Hotel. Popped it's head up and looked around for a bit and then headed out.

Always lots of juvi greens this time of year in the surf.

Wirelessly posted

A few months ago when some of us did Justin's landbase shark tournament I saw a baby sea turtle his shell was about 9 inches wide or so. He was cruising the beach. Once I saw him I stood still, I thought I was going to be able to pet him then he popped his head up saw me and took off for deeper water.
