Good way to see the critters, BTDT, although my 12 year old kiddo likes to see them in flight now while he's diving. 8)

I have done the tour from the shore excursions desk twice and loved both times. If you can do the turtle farm, hell and the snorkling with stingrays. Well worth the money and it's a once in a life time experience

It was ok. We didn't do the whole park. It cost a certain amount to see the turtles and if you wanted to go through the whole park it was even more. I wish I could remember how much it cost but I was pretty amazed at how much it was per person to walk around and see a bunch of sea turtles. I think it was actually cheaper to book it on the ship as a shore excursion. Normally we go out and do things on our own because its cheaper. But in this case it wasn't. Maybe someone else can tell you what else is in the park. Good luck and have fun.

Were there last March...didn't think it was worth it. Admission was about $12. It was like going to a zoo. Neat for the first 15 minutes. It's just our opinion....too touristy and not very original.

Cool, they've expanded. Cayman's always been a safe, if pricy location.
