  • It was a once in a lifetime experience swimming with turtles. One of the highlights of my time in savaii
  • You cannot actually swim here... Misleading advertising. Interesting to see turtles, able to feed them but due to risk of infection transferred to turtles you are not allowed to swim (not that you would want to get into that lagoon....)
  • Kids loved it. They provided paw paw to feed the turtles so they are eat amongst the swimmers

  • many turtles can give eating is the happiness of the children
