Well I felt that we were given false information about the swimming with the turtles... in brochures you see that the swimming with turtles experience is in an open ocean. But when we got there I was shocked to see that the turtles was not in their natural environment. It was very sad to see.... but then on the other... More

I know the village relies on this (its hard to call it an attraction) but I can't think of one thing to reccommend it. The water is dirty had rubbish in it, definetly not a healthy environment for turtles or humans. It was part of tour otherwise would never have gone here. Please leave turtles alone how would you like... More

This is something that we would have never done back in New Zealand! It was such an amazing experience for my kids and there cousin from Asau to have done. Having the courage and getting in the water was such a priceless moment and something that they will never forget. Feeding the turtles gave the kids the opportunity to touch... More

Price $7 tala per adult, $3 tala per child under 12 Our kids couldn't wait to go swimming with the turtles but sadly we wouldn't let them after seeing the water. You drive down and over a lagoon till you turn left into someone property (there are signs) and park your vehicle to the left in front of a sign... More

As you leave the metalled road, you drive down this dirt track through the village and eventually you directed into a family yard. There's a small car park and a building where you pay ($7 for adults, $3 taler for children). The owner directs you along a little path to the changing rooms. There was no one else there when...

There was someone in there with them and unfortunately trying to ride a turtle. There is no one monitoring this. Felt it would be better to let them go... More
