The Longboat Key Turtle Watch group patrols Gulf side beaches starting at the Manatee County line (Sea Club Resort), north to the Longboat Pass bridge, Greer Island (Beer Can).

This stretch of beach is divided into 4 zones and is patrolled by volunteers, who walk the beach at 6:30 AM in the morning, one or more days a week.

The patrols start May 1st, and usually end by mid September when all the marked nests have hatched or been dug up.
