Dozens of baby sea turtles made it back to the big blue on Friday thanks to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium.

The baby turtles were rescued after hatching from their nests but unable to reach the water.

The aquarium said some of them became disoriented after hatching and ended up in a pool filter in Indian Shores. Those turtles were nicknamed "The Pool Boys."

Others were rescued in northwest Florida and taken to the aquarium for rehabilitation.
