I enjoyed visiting the location however I think you have to keep an open mind. They are raising the young turtles from hatchlings which you can pick up and put in your hand. They release them back into the ocean when they are a couple...More

This was the worse thing we did in Vanuatu. It was a complete waste of money - 30,000 VAT which is about $35. There were 11 normal turtles, apparently 1 x 100 year old turtle (which we did not see) there were about 100 tiny...More

We visited Bluewater after our swim at the blue lagoon. It was wonderful to see the turtles up close though it was sad to see them in a small lagoon enclosure. We had a nice BBq lunch included with our visit.

I believe this is now called Crystal Blue Lagoon or swim with turtles but if you are trying to support turtle conservation I would encourage you to research further and visit Moso Island/Tranquillity Island Resort. I wish we had done the Coongoola Day Cruise which...More
