A great place to experience Green Turtles and other marine life. The members of our party had hands-on with the turtles - feeding and holding while the keepers provided information about the Green Turtle.

Loved it, owned by an aussie guy. Staff are friendly, prices fair. Loved the hands on approach with the animals, the boys loved handling the lizards, patting turtles etc. Well worth a visit.
