4D3N Turtle Island/Sepilok/Sukau/Gomantong/Sandakan City Tour

  • Challenge Level:
  • Tour Code: BA13
  • Duration: 4 Days 3 Nights
  • Destination: Sabah

Selingan, the largest of the island, houses the park's headquarters, a turtle hatchery, tourist accommodation and basic facilities. The other two island are more for conservation activities.

As turtle landings usually occur after dusk, an overnight stay would be the best plan to see the turtles as they come ashore to lay their eggs, but shining a light on them or using camera flashes should be avoided as either can be stressful on the creatures.

Turtles lay their eggs throughout the year, but the best time to head to there is between July and October when the sea is calmer. Observe the collection of eggs, tagging of mother turtles and releasing of baby turtles into the sea.
