The turtles are really cute and worth a visit! However, they have a certain size, as the newly hatched ones are released as soon as they hatch. Also some impressive cat sharks in the large basin.

While you won't spend a long time here, it is definitely worth a visit, especially if you like the big sea turtles.

What a great place. Very cheap to visit and it's nice to know the money is going to a important cause. Small but well worth the stop!

Although it only take s 30-45 minutes to visit, the turtle farm seems to be doing a great service to our turtle community as well as the families that visit. We all had a great time.
