“Interesting exhibit.”
Reviewed January 31, 2013 via mobile

This is the most interesting part of the whole of Praia do Forte. It's a small but unique exhibit, and the project is obviously doing great things for the turtle population.

The turtles on display in the exhibit are a bit sad, the pools are pretty small, but it's nice to get close to them too.

“Small but well-presented attraction”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

It's encouraging to learn of Brazil's efforts to save sea turtles from disappearance. They make a real show of feeding the large turtles, which is fun, and the interpretive displays are informative. There is the obligatory gift shop with all things turtle, and as as boinus there is an outdoor bar/cafe with a commanding view of the Port, the beach and the surrounding coast.

“Sea Life Preservation”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

Very nice experience to see and understand the complexity and the beauty of the preservation of the sea turtles. Nest opening and the walk of the "babies" to the sea is a must see (no clinch please, it's for real!).

“Great short excursion”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

The shark exhibit (you can pet the sharks), stingrays, and variety of large turtles (some 5-6 feet long) along with the live turtle releases are the highlights! They typically do the live turtle releases at the end of the day during the season when they hatch (late in the year).

“A must-go of Praia do Forte”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

Dont leave Praia do Forte without visiting it. The guided visiting is very worthy. But the restaurant inside the project is expensive, and the souvernirs are too expensivel.
