Rubbish snorkelling spot and very dangerous as jet skis and boats are flying past while you're in the water! Turtle farm was cruel and the turtles were constantly taken out of the water for tourists to have photos with! Terrible conditions and all animals there...More

Did not actually go there, because we read strongly negative reviews - on Trip Advisor! If you stand on the beach at Benoa, you are sure to have someone approach you, asking you to go to 'Turtle Island'. Bargain down a long way, remembering that...More

Avoid!!!! Shocking place. They claim that the turtles will be released and that it is a conservation centre but there is no way that this is true. The turtles are kept in small areas with little water and it's over-crowded. Our "guide" persistently asked for...More

Small cages, bad animal care and guides that were continuously asking for tips (she asked 3 times). As animal lover you should not support this 'enterprise'.

The turtle island was quite interesting as the animals were so close and you could take pictures. We got to hold a turtle. There was monkeys and bats. And snakes. The glass bottom boat was disappointing as we expected it to be more glass than...More

You can buy tickets when you get to boat pick up point. Most guides know where you can get good prices. If you want to do more than just the glass bottomed boat, i.e. sea walk, parasailing and turtle island, ask for the... More
