We took a taxi from our hotel and he drove us to the nursery, waited there and then drove us back to our hotel. Nursery is so far away from Khao Lak and hotels and in the middle of military area so it’s good to have a ride waiting while you are there. Navy does a great job saving these turtles. Pools might see quite small and bare but the purpose is that turtles will be returned to the nature as soon as it’s possible. Luckily, we happened to be there on feeding time. This is a nice place for afternoon’s visit after a day at the pool. Make sure, though, that they are open as they might close surprisingly early.

Visited here on a trip, felt very sad and uncomfortable for the turtles, the tanks were dirty, not much water in them, though they said they were changing the water. Supposed to be rescuing them but wondered why so many hadn’t been released. Felt very uncomfortable about the whole place.

We payed 60 baht pp wich is fair if you think this will contribute to wildlife conservation, but there was no information and we doubt it had anything to do with conservation. We just saw some tanks with sad turtles

The sea turtle conservatory was wonderful and all the turtles they take care of look very well and clean.

The turtle nursery is located in the navy base. Local taxi driver took care of the formalities at the gate. Entrance fee was 60THB per person (adult/child). The turtle pools were quite small and not decorated at all which was a bit sad. Toilet facilities were okay (toilet paper and soap available). There’s also a small cafe in the area to buy ice cream etc.
