I actually have read the reviews for this place but I thought, "it can't be that bad...". Boy, I was wrong. Truth be told, we kinda enjoy the boat ride there. The boat has a glass bottom, and for about 10 minutes we watched several groups of fish. I've been to Benoa before and I know enough not to expect... More

DON'T GO TO TURTLE ISLAND !!! Our tour guide took us to Nusa Dua for this tour and for two people they wanted $120AUD. We walked away and the tour guide handed back some of his skimmed fee and the price was halved, so it started out as a rip-off. You hop in a large dinghy and are taken on... More

Complete rip off and definitely all about making money off the tourists who go there. Ok let's put the money aside because if the money was going towards animal conservation we would all be happily putting our hands in our pockets for the good cause. It is not that, in fact the animals are so exploited it is disgusting and... More

We were sold this tour, as a package, from one of the many tour organisers located all throughout Kuta on just about every street corner, we paid $110 for 4 adults and 1 child, from the age of 12 you pay as an adult. This tour is definately not worth the money, firstly the Glass Bottom Boat collects us from... More

Yesterday we visited turtle island after being made to believe this was the natural breeding ground for turtles. When we arrived onto the island we could see straight away this was just a scam for tourists. There was a small 'shack' of a building with 'Turtle Farm' written across the top. As soon as we walked in we were greeted... More

We thought we would be snorkelling with Turtles in the ocean but it is captivity at its worst with not only Turtles in very small tanks, but there were other animals in small cages up the back that people were going in and having their picture taken with them, We walked in and basically walked around and walked straight out....

Hard to describe what I felt about this place but all I can say is that it isn't somewhere I would go out of my way to visit. Tacky and a tourist trap not a conservation site!!

OMG do not go! Terrible place to visit! We were tricked in to going as part of pkg "protecting animals", pretty much got off and streight back on tour boat. Animals in tiny cages. Snakes with mouths tied. Horrible!

I thought we were going to an island and snorkel with turtles in the wild. Wish I had a chance to check trip advisor first. Pretty sure one of the turtles was dead but apparently "sleeping". Felt sick that we paid entry to support this abomination. Shameful. Agree with others. Do not go!!
