The Grand Cayman Turtle Farm does indeed have turtles. Many, many turtles. While this is a tourist attraction, the farm also has a focus on research and conservation. The sea turtles were vital to the local economy and eco system of Grand Cayman, but they were incredibly depleted one to two centuries ago requiring conservation.


At the farm you can see turtles in various stages of their life cycle in the breeding tanks, and you can touch and hold turtles at other tanks. If you want a more interactive experience you can even swim in a lagoon with some of them.


But wait! There’s more! Not only are there turtles but there is a resident crocodile that couldn’t be released back into the wild. You will also find a predator tank with sharks, fish, and other sea creatures. If you are a fan of the air over the sea, there is also an aviary with several species of Caribbean birds.


When you’re ready for a change of pace, you can wander along Cayman Street or the Blue Hole Nature Trail. Spend some time cooling off in Breaker’s Lagoon where the only animals you will swim with are safely housed on the other side of the underwater viewing window from the predator tank!

How to get there

If not part of a tour group, you will drive to the North West part of the island. Depending on where you are staying, you will want to make your way to the West Bay Road which runs along the western shore, and follow it until you have reached almost the northernmost point of the island. Parking is available.
