Did you know that sea turtles have a better sense of smell than sharks? This turtle-filled encounter for ages 5 and up...
My daughter (16), my son (5) and myself all enjoyed this encounter. I really liked how educational it was, it was not just about the interaction with the animal but also a teaching moment. We definitely recommend it!
Bad weather so not as fun as I expected
The first 2/3rds of the encounter was honestly pretty disappointing... basically just standing there & having the guide talk about the sea turtles and other turtles... but nothing special (not hands-on). The last 1/3rd (with the tortoises) was great, though... got to spend lots of time in the exhibit with the turtles & touch them & play with them. The final 1/3 largely made up for the sub-par first 2/3 of it.

The kids loved it

Our guide was very knowledgeable of all things turtle. The kids enjoyed feeding the African tortoises and red sliders. The sea turtles are cool to see up close. It was pricey for a group of 5, but a really good experience. The animals are rescue/rehab so money is well spent.
