We took part of the day and went to the turtle farm. Very informative. We were able to hold a turtle as well as snorkel with them. My only negative thought is that the snorkel lagoon could use a bit of cleaning. Other than that the trip was worth the time.

This is a must go while you visit. Lots to learn about these amazing and precious creatures. The kid in all of us finds its way while at this facility. It is yet another way to learn about our environment and the balance we need to maintain.

Stopped in to visit the turtle habitat with the family, the ticket prices for adults were$ 45 US each for the full park &$18 if I remember for just half the park tour. There were several pools that has the big breeding turtles, some with small turtles that you can pick up & feed you can buy a bag of... More

While visiting Grand Cayman Island on our Panama Cruise, we booked a tour that included the turtle farm. We didn't think much about this stop of the tour prior to our arrival. Once here, we really enjoyed watching the turtles. We even had the opportunity to climb in a tank and hold some of the medium sized turtles. Great photo... More

Ever had a question about how turtles breed? You won't after you leave here. Very interesting exhibits. Hold a baby sea turtle and snorkel with turtles in a lagoon are highlights. Lots of fun, informative and worthwhile. I'd go back for a second visit.

We took this excursion off the cruise ship. This was our second stop. The tour guide was fun, informative and responsive to questions. we had full access to the park (just not enough time). Kids got to hold turtles. We snorkeled in a lagoon with turtles and fish and they were very close. Free snorkle gear provided. There is a... More

The poor turtles and other creatures have bad living conditions. Sure, you can get up close and hold them but they are crammed into a holding tank with only water. No rocks/vegetation or anything. We toured the park for a couple hours then went to a great lunch at a nearby beach bar. We came back at 4p to use... More

We have been to other turtle Farms on different islands and this was the smallest and we would not go back. Not much to see, just a bunch of turtles. You can hold them and take pictures but next time we would skip. Made it through in about 1 hour. Was clean and had friendly staff, but just not worth... More

We only did the turtle visit, but it was so amazing to see so many turtles and also get to touch and feel them! Very fun for a family.

A short ride from the cruise terminal and we were at the turtle farm. The kids loved seeing the turtles (the size of the ones in the breeding area is amazing) and being able to hold them and touch the turtles. The turtle lagoon is nice for snorkeling with fish and turtles as well and offers an up close view... More
