  • Great place, my son thought s was the best part of the holiday. If you take time to talk to the very enthusiastic guy there, you'll learn how this helps the turtles - and they could do with some help too!
  • Amaxing experience! Full props to the team caring for these animals. At least somebody is trying to do something so ignore people bad mouthing this place
  • Incredible place run by an amazing man. Highly recommend to anyone who gets the chance.
  • I don't see how this is helping turtles. Keeping them in small pens and some even in tiny boxes separated from the others, swimming into the walls. And in the big pens where they keep the small turtles it looks like dead turtles floating around. A great idea for the turtles but the facilities for them are appalling.
  • My son just loved it. Keep up the good work
