    Experience would be better if owners assisted at the water hole. No direction on what was safe to do.  more »

    One of the highlights of our trip. The children & adults loved it. For those of us that didn't want to get in the water, there was enough seating and other areas to be able to take photos  more »

    We were disappointed - i expected to see them with access to the sea. It made me really sad to see them just being touched and prodded by tourists. we were there for maybe 10 min.  more »

    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
