Tour Description

The Turtle Island Park lies 40km north of Sandakan in the Sulu Sea, comprises of 3 islands – Selingan, Gulisan and Bakungan Kecil. Selingan Turtle Island houses the park’s headquarters, turtle hatchery, basic accommodation and visitor centre. This is a nesting place and foraging ground for sea turtles; most commonly Green and Hawksbill Turtle. Therefore, you might have chance to join a guided observation of sea turtle nesting process and/or new hatchlings of baby turtles released to the sea. As turtle landings usually occur at night, above the high tide mark or with a preference of mid-tide. Thus, an overnight stay would be the best plan in order to witness the amazing moment when turtle come ashore to lay their eggs.
