“Don't go! It is a trap!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2014 via mobile

These guys are cheaters!
1. Cost after negotiation: 400k IRP!!! Way too much! (Initially they asked for 40USD per person)
2. Glass bottom boat is very small with a small glass through which you don't see much, especially if air comes between water and glass!!!
3. Turtle island: big trap! They have exactly 2 small pools with turtles and 5 cages with other animals. Sad! Better go to Zoo!!
Don't give them money!!! They cheat you big time!

“New Experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

Glass bottom boat was something new..the ride was very good but one doesnt see too many fishes. Turtle Farm also is good to visit espcially when you have children.

“We got to hold a Turtle”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2014

That's about it. Like the rest of the reviews, I would have given this a miss if read them before we booked. I pictured a far off Island where the Turtles roam in pens happily. Sad turtles. And it's just around the corner from Benoa past all of the water sports. The boat ride was fun and they stop and throw bread so that you can see the fish through the glass in the floor.

When you get there You get a pic and to hold one then you are lead to the bar and the guide sells you a sad story to increase her tip size even after you buy them drinks etc. then try take you to the gift shop to try take more money.

We bought her and our driver a drink, tipped her daughter a few $'s then gave her a IDR$50,000 tip ($5)

We were happy to get out of there and would have preferred to spend the $'s elsewhere but hey we got to hold a turtle and that's what we went there for.
