Self guided tour with turtles

The area has several displays and tanks with fish and turtles. The cost of entry is low and it supports a good cause. Great for kids.

This is an awesome opportunity to learn more about turtles, all different types of turtles. Tamar runs tours a couple of times per day, so it's pretty easy to find a tour to see. The restaurant inside Tamar is not cheap, but it has a delicious fried fish.

We were visiting the Projeto Tamar over several years. My kids 15 and 11 were telling me, that years ago, the Projeto used to be cleaner. The tanks were better taken care of. Please keep on watching it. Maybe Petrobras does not pay as much as they used to. The Restaurant is nice (Moqueqa) good wine list. Thank you for... More

My husband and I really enjoyed our visit. We saw about a dozen turtles of different types as well as newly hatched babies. We also saw fabulous stingrays and other fish and 2 nursing sharks. Thoroughly enjoyed it. The shop had good quality products too and proceeds go to the project. We also enjoyed a lovely lunch overlooking the Atlantic... More

It is not a musuem, it is not an aquarium so don't expect to see lots of turtles. The main purpose of Projeto Tamar is to show the work of this association in preserving sea turtles. There are some animals and some species of fish, though.

Ok so this was nice as the thought of helping turtles but it really did not have much to see. They had a couple of turtles and some fish. Also everything is in potuguese. I think they need to find a way to add english on the reading boards to foreigners like me and my family will enjoy the walk... More

Admission fee of BRL 22 for adults and BRL 11 for children, this is a MUST GO PLACE at Praia do Forte. The turtles are the main focus - which sparkled the preservation culture among locals and introduced the Eco tourism concept - but the space also hold sharks (tubarao lixa) and a big skate Enjoy the music at Saturday...
