We are getting reports of leaterbacks swimming just offshore in our area. These are the largest sea turtles weighing up to 1500 lbs. with a carapace 5 ft. long. They are on their northern migration after nesting in Central and South America and are heading to the cooler waters of the North Atlantic where they will forage over the summer. Leatherbacks favorite food is cannonball jellyfish and they are plentiful right now!
