    Best experience of whole ( brilliant) Bali trip!
    Had no real idea what to expect but this was really, really wonderful. Probably at its best since it’s hatching season- even a generally unimpressable (am sure that’s not a word, but sums up the sentiment) 16 yr old lad was delighted by the conservation and hands-on opportunities. Best of all the trip to release a baby into the wild… if it is on offer, you should do it… will stay with us all for a long time. Great that they do 2 week volunteer vacations… gap year opportunity perfection !

    Great family experience to see some turtles.
    Absolutely fantastic experience. No pressure for donation and free to enter. Lots of rescued turtles to see with lots of rescued turtle babies to see also. We had a great young German volunteer guide who was really clear and knowledgeable about the turtles. He made the whole experience much more enjoyable and I wish him well during his volunteering. We were offered the option to adopt a baby turtle which was a great experience. It cost 230000 rupees each but you got to fish out a turtle, short 5 min car ride to a boat where you are taken out about 10mins to release your turtle. You get a little certificate as a token. Great experience for the family to remember. We took a grab from nusa dua (be aware they don’t allow grab pick ups but the taxi drivers on site offered a reasonable price back.

    Great initiative with real motivated and engaged people
    Interesting to talk to the people involved in saving the Balinese turtle population! Free entrance and free contribution. We met some really motivated people and they make you enthusiastic to support their initiative. Although quite small, it was a great experience!

    Free a turtle - release a baby turtle in the wild. A cool experience
    Release a week old turtle in the wild. Important center that help the only 7 specimens of the world sea turtles alive. You learn about the challenges the turtles meet and see an area with eggs in sand and lots of very sweet youngsters ready for a life in the oceans. For 250.000 you can adopt tour own turtle, go in rescue car and boat and actually set the turtle free. Cool, although the boat man stopped in the middle of a busy boat traffic area - and that did not really increase the option of my turtle (called Kjell-Pett-Erik).

    Cannot rave enough about this place
    Such an amazing sanctuary. You can tell the turtles are so well cared for and relaxed. All turtles of different species and sizes. There is no entry fee but definitely make sure to donate! So happy there are places like this that actually nurture these creatures. They are rescued from pollution , fishing nets and the black market and brought here for rehabilitation. We spent about an hour here and just loved it. Thankyou🩷🩷

    Adopt a turtle
    The children were so happy to see so many different turtles and other animals. The guide was very good with her explanations. She was a bit pushy asking for a tip which we would have given anyway. The girls were excited to adopt two baby turtles and release them into the sea.

    Feel good experience
    Wasn't too sure what to expect, but it was well worth a visit. Free entry and a guide assigned to you on arrival. He explained many turtles are rescues, either from fishing net or propeller damage. There are turtles also confiscated from black market activity. There is a hatching area and you can adopt a week old baby turtle and release it back into the sea at a cost of $25. You are transferred by car to the port and taken on a short boat ride out to sea to release the turtle. A must for families or anyone wanting to help the environment. All proceeds go back into saving the turtles.

So much work by rgw volunteers. Very clever guides who are passionate about seeing our turtles thrive. Be awesome if their government supported the work

I absolutely loved this place. The volunteer took us through and shared so much information with us about the turtles. This is an absolutely necessary trip to educate yourself on sea life/ our endangered turtles.

Went here as the reviews on 'Turtle Island' were not good. This was a brilliant experience. Extremely educational and great to know that there is such an organisation dedicated to the conservation of turtles. The staff were excellent and very knowledgeable. Our grandson enjoyed the experience of releasing a turtle into the ocean and receiving a certificate. A must visit experience time only 1-1/2 hours.
