Discover Our Sea Turtles

If you are looking to get up and personal with some of the most magnificent creatures of the sea, then a day exploring the Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation Center is a perfect destination for a family adventure. You don’t have to be able to shred the waves, or paddle to discover unique and exciting things on Topsail Island. Each year thousands of baby sea turtles are hatched on Topsail Island. There are a few ways to get in on the action.  First, visit the rehab center and check out the latest information. Then ask about a Sea Turtle Boil. No, it’s not what you think. A Boil is when the nest comes alive as the baby Sea Turtles hatch and make their way to the open waters of the Atlantic.
