A very interesting place in Savai'i which we were told was a sanctuary. These are apparently turtles which have got entangled in nets and had been taken into care. Natural sea water is let into the pool. They did not look distressed or maltreated, contrary...More

We went early and were the only people there. I was going to get in and swim with the turtles but the water was very green and murky and I decided against it. Instead I sat on the edge with my legs in the water....More

Was good when we visited as only a few people there but wouldnt be as good with a large crowd. was amazing to feed the turtles and the price was very reasonable. Road in is a bit rough but take your time and no worries

Not a place I enjoyed. Poor turtles kept in a pond. You can do a tour with Dive Savaii and see the turtles out in the open sea so much better

Take lots of pawpaw skin.expect the turtles to be slimy, wear reef shoes. I was undecided about whether to visit after reading reviews, but the kids loved this experience.

It is a long way to go to feed and swim with the turtles. We did think it would be in a ocean pool and were disappointed that it was in a concrete pool at the back of a house. There were quite a few...More
