  • In my opinion this is not a Sanctuary at all as the poor creatures live miserable lives and are not prepared at all for life in the ocean. In my opinion it is exploitation of Turtles.  more »
  • This was one of the stops on the island tour. They are in need of donations for building upgrades and turtle food.  more »

  • Just a great place to visit, a wonderful story thst needs your support to keep it going.
  • Is this a sanctuary, really? A few concrete ponds, each with several turtles. No signage. No one explaining anything. I asked the old guy a few questions, to monosyllabic answers. This would be a rip-off at $1....but they want $6 US.
