  • I was disappointed with the Tamar. I was expecting a lot more. There is no one explaining anything although there are a lot of people working. We only make the journey by watching and reading the plates because no one appears not to explain anything.

  • The Tamar project is excellent to go in couple, family or with the small. Feed sharks, meet the history of turtles, taking photos, it's a great entertainment

  • This part of the Tamar project can illustrate very well the explanations given on the tour. Are images, figures and data that exemplify the life cycle of turtles, you dwell and how it protects it.
