This is an amazing experience swimming with these guys. They are very gentle and very curious at the same time.

This is no Turtle Sanctuary... they take perfectly healthy wild Turtles and imprison them in the sordid, filthy zoo so we can cross something off our bucket list... Don't support this zoo. It is filthy and the turtles are surely depressed. It's no way for...More
