Help conserve turtles. Pay to join in the baby turtle race to the ocean. It's fun and it helps fund the great work of the Turtle Conservation and Education Centre.

This is not a humane place for animals. In a poorly maintained place, the animals were apathetic and disturbed by the constant noise. I was angry about the whole visit, how can this be allowed. However, I have seen previously well-kept places.

This was a good experience. My daughter got to release a small turtle and she still talks about that. Entry is free. Releasing a turtle is 150k. Would recommend it.
