This one-of-a-kind, 23-acre adventure marine park is one of the most exciting Caribbean attractions.
The Cayman Turtle Farm on Grand Cayman celebrates Caymanians’ stewardship of the seas and relationship with nature through tactile, colourful, educational and memorable experiences. The park allows visitors to experience the rich history of Caymanian life in a fun and safe environment while providing opportunities to observe and interact with native flora and fauna.
The expanded facilities ensure visitors continue to learn more about these amazing sea creatures as well as our new additions including the predators, birds, caiman, and other exciting creatures. The new park also houses a world-class research and educational facility that focuses on the conservation of sea turtles.
Visitors can now enjoy a refreshing, cool dip in the ever inviting Breaker’s fresh water tidal lagoon and dine on a scrumptious meal at Breaker’s Snack Shack. Items on the menu include jerk chicken and pork, hamburgers, sandwiches, and desserts amongst other delights. Everyone will enjoy the experience of the finest Caymanian cuisine at a variety of locations throughout the park.
The park offers visitors a unique opportunity to swim and snorkel with fish and other marine life in its 1.3 million gallon salt-water lagoon. Guests can also peer into the predator tank and come nose-to-nose with sharks and eels. Let your imagination soar as you wander through the beautiful free-flight bird aviary or stroll down an historic Caymanian street complete with porch side artisans. Children and adults alike will delight in interacting with starfish, urchins and crabs at the touch pool, for a Caribbean vacation unlike any other.
The only one of its kind in the world, the Grand Cayman Turtle Farm is home to over 11,000 Green Sea Turtles, ranging in size from six ounces to six hundred pounds each. Visitors can tour an actual working farm, which is both educational and entertaining, and turtles are available for guests to hold for an amazing and unique photo opportunity.
