Today we are in Mazatlan as we continue the adventures of our Royal Princess Mexican Riviera cruise. We cruise into balmy Mazatlan bright and early just in time for wonderful view of the port from our stateroom balcony. We meet our guide at the dock, and board a comfortable bus for the relaxing trip to the turtle sanctuary at Estella del Mar. This is a truly unique Princess Excursion that starts with a visit and introduction to the Turtle Sanctuary. The official name of this excursion is: A Day At The Beach & Marine Baby Turtle Encounter. The Estrella del Mar Turtle Sanctuary is dedicated to the protection, rehabilitation and conservation of the sea turtle within its natural environment. Here, marine biologists gather endangered gulf turtle eggs and incubate them in a safe environment. The eggs are placed at the exact depth that the mother laid them and allowed to incubate for 45 days. Normally, hatchlings would immediately return to the sea, but the sanctuary allows the tiny turtles time to gain strength before placing them back on the sand during the night when they are less visible to predators so they can make their dash to the ocean.
We we fortunate enough to participate in a mock turtle release on the beach. This Princess excursion may not always include a mock turtle release, so we were happy to have the opportunity. You'll get a good look at the mock release in this video. From there we board the bus again for a very short trip to the resort where we will enjoy a delicious buffet lunch, hours of fun on the beach, and hanging out in the hot tub. Our time on the beach was just priceless family time, and something I think we'll all remember and treasure. After the excursion it's back to the dock. We encounter a brief wait at the port, but it's not long before we are back on the Royal Princess. We book reservations at Royal Princess' Sabatini's. We'll give you a good look a the food, and close out this cruise vlog with a review of the day. Thank you all for following along on our Royal Princess Mexican Riviera cruise. We have more cruise adventures to share including our stop in Puerto Vallarta.
