  • Here is take care of turtles. They breed and then released to the sea. It is an important place for support and thus protect sea turtles and other creatures of the sea.

  • Interesting little place. Don't quite understand why they are raising turtles here, I thought they just facilitated the hatchlings to enter the sea without being scooped up by predators but maybe I mi...  more »

  • My wife insists we stop here so our friends can see this place. Last friend we took walked in the marine display building and came out in less than 2 minutes... said "Where's the interesting stuff"? I said "That was it" Don't remember any of our friends being impressed with this place.
  • Great place to visit sea turtles. I've never seen so many sea turtles at once, it was a great experience to get to know the different kind of turtles. There are also a couple fish tanks with some cool looking fish. Admission is 30 pesos per person, which is not too bad considering what these guys are doing to help preserve these animals. Would recommend if it is on ur way and have a golf cart.
  • Nice to see sea turtles up close. You can buy pellets at the entrance to feed them. The place is small. Entrance fee is about £1.10. The environment for the turtles seems a little small. Larger turtles outside around the back of the building.
  • This was a nice place to visit. It's very inexpensive and if you have little kids, it's a good place to spend some time. Staff is friendly and you get up close and personal with the various ocean life. It's cute to see the turtles at different stages...the little guys to the very big guys!
  • They are doing good work here. Protecting sea turtles for future generations. Its not the most state of the art place but still nice none the less
