Sea Turtles Leaving The Shore

After taking to the water for the first time, male sea turtles will not return to shore again. 

Females however, will come ashore to lay their eggs on sandy beaches during the nesting season.  During the first three to five years of life, sea turtles spend most time floating in seaweed beds. Once the sea turtle has reached adulthood it moves closer to the shore.
