“The guide book big this up...too much !”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

The project was smaller than expected and for the money poor value... I would have expected more as it is profiled so highly as a must see experience....

Loved it all, they are doing a great job to help and conserve the Tamar (Turtles). Plenty to see plus some good food as well, very relaxing.

“Great place to visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

We were lucky to see the 3 day old baby turtles swimming in a small pool! And it was great to see the turtles in clean, large pools! I felt I learnt a lot too!

“Interesting and Educational”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

Projecto Tamar was very interesting and educational. At first, I was troubled by the zoo-like confinements for the turtles. Once I watched a video on the project and their overall goals (a free, 10-minute video they show on-site), I did feel a bit better about supporting this effort. They have released over 9 million turtles back into the ocean, although many do not survive. They are doing what they can to make sure the turtles are not extinct, so tourists - by nature of your admission fee - become part of this initiative. Interesting to view such large turtles up close and personal. Shark feeding was also intriguing. A good attraction for visitors to Praia do Forte in Bahia.
