We thoroughly enjoyed our visit -- it was great to see the work they do to protect turtle nests by transplanting them to the facility to hatch. And the turtles in the ranks were very healthy. As a biologist and sea turtle person, I was hesitant to visit after sone of the negative reviews I had read. I have been... More

There were not any baby turtles, but several younger ones in tanks. There are some larger ones in the ocean area. Last time we were here, our kids got to hold turtles, stingrays, etc. None of that this time. There were not any staff members around visiting and giving information either. For the cheap admission fee, this is a fun... More

Awesome close up views of large and small sea turtles. Great experience. A must-see stop as you travel to the south end of the island.

Very informative tour with lots of different creatures to see. Ranges from the baby turtles to the larger ones that have been found injured that they are rehabbing for future release. The eggs are harvested from the beaches and protected until they hatch. When ready they are released at a local beach at dusk. Ask about the turtle releases when... More

You can see many types of sea turtles there which is a great experience especially if you do not plan to dive and watch them underwater. Children (5-12) would especially enjoy the visit. Actually, the farm is just part of a program designed to repopulate the island with sea turtles. From gathering the turtle eggs as soon as they are... More

$3 entry fee to see a small amount of turtles, but they have bubble tea which is really worth it in their small sundry shop!

This attraction costs 30mxp each. Don't pay for the extra food because they are so over fed that they don't want all the tidbits that you have paid for. Takes about 30-40 minutes. Nice for times when you need to get out of sun.

As a scuba diver I've seen lots of turtles but this was a neat little place. $3 to get in is nice too
