This was one of the highlights of our trip and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience(even if they did nibble at us a little). i can highly recommend going there, it is a very quaint natural"aquarium" that is linked to the ocean(best to go at hi tide). You get to swim with these gentle giants, +-20 of them in various stages of growth from 30cm to a whopping 1.5m as well as some fish. You get to feed them seaweed but be warned those beaks are sharp but those alluring eyes ask for forgiveness immediately after the "accidental nip".
Be warned there are two "aquariums" next to each other the one does not allow you to swim with the turtles make sure you insist on the other one for full turtle satisfaction as our "taxi" tried to get us to the cheaper one for more mulla for him. Definetly worth the $15 we paid including the 20min ride from Nungwi Hideway hotel.
