If you are in Praia do Forte you must go here. Such a great project. Make sure your check the schedule of the days activities, we were able to go back at 5:00 and watch them retrive the hatchlings from the nest then released into the sea. Very cool !

Great place for kids to get in touch with sea animals. The infrastructure improved a lot since our last time there.

It raises money for turtle conservation but a lot of European and North American visitors would be unhappy about the enclosures and how the turtles are kept. They really need to find a better way to inform people about turtles without keeping them this way. Do not go if you respect animals and are not a fan of poor zoos!

second time visiting Tamar and it is wonderful to see the great job being done with the turtles. I recommend going there, especially when there are baby turtles hatching eggs.

Good place to visit specially with kids so they can see turtles. It's a little expensive but I guess it's worth as it's a nice project that supports wildlife and also the local community. It's definitely worth a visit (an hour or an hour and a half is more than enough).

If you think of Praia do Forte, you have to think about the turtles! And Projeto Tamar is a perfect tour for kids, they get crazy inside, they can see the a lot of information, I don't know if they has in English, but you should go anyway. If you go between 8:30 and 9:00 in the morning it's free.

This sunny, fun and friendly place is full of species of turtles, rays and other fish. The project to save the turtles is beautiful and you (or kids) can participate later on by releasing baby turtles on the beach by the end of the day. (I'm not sure this happens every single day) You'll learn about the many species, you... More
