I visited this place during my Western Caribbean cruise as part of a tour with Johanna. The other members of my tour did not want to visit because there was a fee to be paid, but it was well worth it. The farm is very interesting. One gets to see turtles of different sizes and colors, and you get to... More

We visited the Turtle Farm last week. We only purchased the Turtle Center Exploration Tour which did not include the Turtle Lagoon or Predator Reef. We thoroughly enjoyed the Turtle Touch Tanks. One of the staff allowed my daughter to feed the turtles which was a highlight for her. We were only there approximately two hours as there isn't too... More

Lots of sea turtles to see, and even hold. The feedings at 11:00 and 3:30 are really fun to watch. They have changed their name to emphasise the research and turtle release into the wild rather than the growing of turtle meat.

The Turtle farm offers two options: limited access to just the turtles for $18, and a full pass for $45. We chose the first option, and really enjoyed the visit. The turtle area consists of multiple tank areas containing various sizes of turtles, including some that weigh hundreds of pounds. It was fun to see them swimming around and watch... More

Went to the Turtle Farm in 1998 when there wasn't much there but now it is a place I would go to on any return trip to Grand Cayman. There are 2 price points for entry. One, the cheaper one, allows you into the park to see the turtles. There are several holding areas with different sizes of turtles and... More

I love turtles as much as the next person, but we spent $45 per person and saw everything within 30 minutes. Total tourist trap.

We did the smaller portion of the park and it was very small and basic. It was fun to hold the turtles and see how big they are, but you don't get that close and there's not much else to see. It would be a lot of fun for young children, but for adults there is better things you could... More

I loved learning about the turtles, the guide was nice and explained things thoroughly and was easy to understand. The highlight of course is holding the turtles. My sister and I loved it.

For the money$18 US you only get to walk around a small area and see the turtles. $45 US you get the full use of the facility and swim with the turtles. Not real impressed
