Visit the most tangible piece of Caymanian heritage by interacting with marine turtles, learning about the conservation efforts and how the turtle is such an integral part of Caymanian lifestyle. Open since 1968, the historic Cayman Turtle Farm, the only one of its kind in the world, is home to over 8,000 green sea turtles ranging in size from hatchlings to 600 pounds each. Passing through the Reception building, guests are immediately able to see the larger turtles in the impressive Breeding Pond. The exhibit is viewed against a heavily landscaped background of lush vegetation and palm trees. Veering to the right, guests can stop and actually handle young turtles in the easily accessible display tanks; a feature sure to be a big hit with all visitors and an amazing and unique photo opportunity. One can also enjoy the wild of the deep blue Caribbean Sea here in our own back yard at the 1.3 million gallon saltwater Turtle Lagoon. Swim and interact with the yearling turtles then come nose-to-nose with sharks and other exotic fish as you peer through the underwater viewing panel of our Predator Tank. Then relax and enjoy a carefree day in the freshwater Breaker’s Lagoon. If you get hungry, the Schooners Bar and Grill is nearby so you can purchase and try mouthwatering local cuisines. For those wanting to take a little of the Cayman Turtle Farm home, stop in and visit our 3,500 square foot Gift Shop "Splash" located in the Reception building featuring Cayman Turtle Farm memorabilia with a range of souvenirs to suit all tastes and budgets.
