Summer Happenings with Island Time Charters

Our Sea Turtle Nest

Our adopted turtle nest is in the incubation period! The Momma Sea Turtle laid her eggs on June 3rd and it takes 50-60 days before they are ready to hatch.  We can’t wait to meet our new baby sea turtle friends!

The local turtle team with Coastal Discovery Museum, marks a nest with a green ribbon on the 45th day of incubation and is a signal to check every day to see if there are signs of hatching.  Our babies are set to make their appearance the first week of August. It won’t be long now!

You can help by purchasing our Custom Sea Turtle Sticker and 100% of the proceeds go to the Sea Turtle Project of Hilton Head Island. Get yours today and share how you're sporting your support by tagging us on facebook or instagram!

Help Protect the Sea Turtles

This season we had the opportunity to adopt our very own Loggerhead Sea Turtle nest with The Coastal Discovery Museum! Loggerhead Sea Turtles are threatened and need everyone's help! Whether you are visiting Hilton Head, or are a local, The Town of Hilton Head shared these helpful tips:

  • If your building is visible from the beach, turn off your outside lights at 10 p.m. from 1 May - 31 October, the nesting and hatching season for Loggerheads.

  • If any of your interior lights are visible from the beach or cast light on the beach, close blinds or drapes at 10 p.m. or turn them off.

  • Never leave beach umbrellas, chairs, or any other beach accessories on the beach overnight. Nesting female turtles may get tangled in them, and for hatchlings they are often impassable and disorienting.

  • If you are digging holes in the beach or building sand castles, please return the sand to its undisturbed state before leaving the beach. Both of these things can be death traps for hatchlings that stumble into them.

  • Place all trash and recyclables in the appropriate receptacles.

  • Never disturb a sea turtle nest, a nesting sea turtle or a hatchling.
