We really enjoyed our experience. But we did need to readjust what a 'sanctuary' for animals should be like. Keep it in perspective. This is not a first world country and what they are trying to do is commendable. Don't bother swimming as the water...More

We visited the the turtles and were saddened by what we saw. The turtles are kept in captivity and visitors not supervised so were getting mistreated; parents were encouraging their children to chase the turtles then hold them up for experience. We were appalled there...More

Best place to try you luck, look my other reviews and articles or look on you tube. The turtles most short after sunset to watch

Another great attraction on Savaii. costs about WST$7. Remember to take some food for them though. The turtles themselves are very tame and gentle. This is a real Samoan experience

Be aware of slippery rocks getting in and out. Lovely serene place. Friendly caretakers who gave us paw paw skins to feed the turtles.

Not much to say except it was complete waste of time. The kids did swim in the waterhole but were disappointed to not really experience swimming with the turtles.It just seems like another way for the locals to pocket another dollar from tourists. We barely...More

It was actually sad to see the turtles kept in that swimming hole and not enjoying the open sea as they should. We were not given fruit to feed them with as they did not have any so we kind of just watched them do...More

We wanted to love this place, we really did. As massive animal lovers though, there's just no way that we could recommend it. Save your money and more importantly, save any more turtles from being bundled up into this awful attraction.

Beautiful day to swim with turtles. Tried not to stress them out too much as surely they must get hassled alot by tourists. Fed them papaya & took some pictures with them swimming worth the stop
