We visited on the recommendation of our guide on a round-the-island tour. It was really special to see and feed the rescued turtles, from tiny babies to adults. We also saw coconut crabs, fruit bats, lizards, butterflies.... Our guide Nancy was very friendly and knowledgeable. It's great to know the turtles will be released back into the wild when they are ready. The young children from the family going through with us were fascinated too.

This place exceeded our expectations! Great fun and educational tour. The guide is full of information and we got to pick up and put our feet in with the baby turtles, hold coconut crabs and iguanas. Fantastic place!!

It was an educational visit, which supports the local turtles and educates the local schools. I recommend for all to attend a worthy adventure for all ages.

We were very lucky on our visit to Port Vila to get to see this place. Our guide was awesome we got to sit in the pool with the baby turtles and they were so cute! They nibble your feet. We got to pick up the coconut crab and hold a lizard well worth the $20 entry fee. Had a great time.

We had a great time here. Our group was aged 1 to 92 and everyone enjoyed it. The turtles were neat to see, as well as the other animals. I would come recommend this stop!
