Join us for Sandy Point Sunset Watch!
We have a new program this summer! This spring, we had very few leatherback nests laid on our beach and as a result, our usual Hatchling Watch Program is becoming the Sandy Point Sunset Watch program. During the visit, your group will start the evening with a short video on the Leatherback Project at the refuge office followed by a trip out to the beach. Participants will have the opportunity to observe all the beauty of Sandy Point at sunset. This may include seeing nesting sea turtle tracks in the sand, green turtles popping up for air in the nearshore, frolicking dolphins, shorebirds on the beach, a possible green flash and there is still a chance of seeing some leatherback sea turtle hatchlings!
Community Group Requirements
Sandy Point Sunset Watch will be available to both youth, adult and community groups (with priority given to children and youth groups). Group size has been designated as 12-15 (with children groups requiring 3 of the 15 participants to be adult chaperones). We accept applications from the following group types:

- Virgin Islands groups with large community membership (e.g., church)
- Groups with an environmental charter in the VI

Unfortunately, individual applications cannot be accepted. This list represents some common examples of groups that are invited to apply for the Turtle Watch Program.  If you believe that your group should be included on this list, please contact us at
