Went to turtle Island in December hoping to see an island filled with turtles. Instead we were over charged to be taken on a unnecessary boat trip to a horrible place. Large turtles are kept in dirty pools of water where tourists and staff were...More

The whole experience is so horrifying... Right from glass bottom boats... Reaching turtle island which isn't good. Really feel sad to see all animals being in such poor conditions... Just to make money. Please avoid this place... Govt should close this at earliest. Total waste...More

Once upon a time, this was a wonderful sea turtle conservation place accessible by bridge with no admission charge, just a no-pressure request for donations. No longer. It has been transformed into a sea turtle gulag where the larger turtles are kept in filthy water....More

What a waist of money taking a glass bottom boat tour to turtle island. It’s more like a farm enclosure than anything else definitely not a island experience. From Arrival to departure everyone just trying to make money of you for any small little thing.

If you have any kind of love of animals I would strongly avoid going. Tiny enclosures, petting wildlife, extorting wildlife & pulling the turtles out of the water for pictures. Conservation indeed?!
