Couple dozen wee turtles looked half dead, couple large unwell looking turtles complete rip off. you are urged to pay to release a small turtle. it all seemed seedy and contrived.

Very knowledgeable and dedicated guide who obviously cares for the turtles and provides a lot of detailed information.
Not much to see, and what we did see was not ok. A turtle missing a wing or flap to basing its buddy away was in a so small tank that i as a human has that as a bathtub. Think it great what they do, but try harder and do better
