We found this an interesting place to visit. The staff were very informative & the grounds amazingly clean. Being able to handle the turtles was a highlight. Loved the aviary even though it's small. A great place for children to learn about turtles.

This was our second trip to the turtle farm. Cost was $45/person for unlimited access to the park or $18/person for only the turtle portion. We opted for the unlimited access because we wanted to swim in the lagoon with turtles and fish and also do the water slide. We spent close to 4 hours there with our 2.5 year... More

I have visited the turtle farm on 5 occasions and never get tired of the beautiful turtles. this is a great time for all ages you can hold the turtles and take pictures. Young children can get in the turtle tank and wade around with the turtles. If you are in Grand Cayman this is a must stop , the... More

I never knew that the sea turtle was so interesting -- they even make it fun to pick up a baby turtle and hold it while they take a picture for you with your phone. This park has a number of great animal interaction sites, too, including parrots, starfish, and even predators! Good family spot with a restaurant and cool... More

Kids loved their experience here. It was nice to try out our snorkeling skills in the turtle lagoon before going out in open water later in our visit to Cayman. Aviary didn't have much and the restaurant was extremely slow and overpriced....priciest place we are at all week and it was just burgers. If you aren't newer to snorkeling the... More

If you have never got up close to a turtle before, this is worth a visit. They will let you hold one of the young turtles & you can have your photo taken with them.

We took part of the day and went to the turtle farm. Very informative. We were able to hold a turtle as well as snorkel with them. My only negative thought is that the snorkel lagoon could use a bit of cleaning. Other than that the trip was worth the time.

This is a must go while you visit. Lots to learn about these amazing and precious creatures. The kid in all of us finds its way while at this facility. It is yet another way to learn about our environment and the balance we need to maintain.

While visiting Grand Cayman Island on our Panama Cruise, we booked a tour that included the turtle farm. We didn't think much about this stop of the tour prior to our arrival. Once here, we really enjoyed watching the turtles. We even had the opportunity to climb in a tank and hold some of the medium sized turtles. Great photo... More
