Fabulous, the tanks are a little ungainly but the turtles are fabulous and this is only a temp home until they are fit to be released back to the sea.

Unless at the port then do not waste your time as it is permanently closed. Able to see some turtles through the railings. Staff member took our phone and took pictures. There really is nothing else there to see or do at the port.
