I enjoyed my trip to Turtle Island. We had a great guide who knew a lot about all the animals here and clearly had a great bond with them.
Our guide assisted us in getting photos with turtles and snakes! I didn't expect to be permitted to hold these animals without paying a big fee. We were only asked to pay $1AUD to support the conservation here. Time was not limited and our guide ensured we handled the animals correctly.
I'm very surprised at the bad reviews. I felt the animals were cared for and were not in distress. There were no small cages jam packed with animals. When our guide entered a cage with a bat he was tickling it's stomach and having fun with him - clearly a bond he had developed. He had thorough knowledge of the animals, and those found in Australia. He was able to teach me things about my own native animals.
Don't bother with the glass boat though, you don't see anything but rubbish and water rushing under you. I thought they would stop over a reef or something. We weren't permitted to snorkel that day either due to there being too many jelly fish. I'd rather have snorkelling cancelled than being dropped in for the sting!
