  • Such a great place to setup and preserve the things that are so beautiful in the area. I was in awe of how the turtles survive and to get to see and learn is a great place to visit when in the area.  more »
  • I think the drive is a part of what is pleasing. Then I give it a VG rating more because I am committed to what this place does, but some persons may find it a bit boring.  more »

  • Nice place to learn about turtles and to relax and play with the turtles. Great staff from the local area and they have great know about Bequia and St Vincent. They have turtle talks and explain about the different types of turtle and their habitat.
  • Awesome to see these large animals in captivity and doing just fine after seven years before release to the Ocean
