Was good when we visited as only a few people there but wouldnt be as good with a large crowd. was amazing to feed the turtles and the price was very reasonable. Road in is a bit rough but take your time and no worries

My husband and I visited this place today and to be honest if we had known what it was like there is NO WAY we would have gone. It is NOT swimming with turtles, it is feeding captive turtles, in a dark, dank pond, with...More

Don’t go to Savai’i without visiting this place. A once in a lifeline experience for my kids. The turtles are friendly and easy to swim with. We got some amazing footage with the GoPro.
