Boatswain Beach and Turtle Farm
This eco-sensitive turtle farm on Grand Cayman exists to provide the local market with edible turtle meat (preventing the need to hunt them in the wild) and to replenish the Caribbean waters with hatchling and yearling turtles, with the hope that one day their population in the sea will regain its former status.
Visitors can observe turtles in every stage of development in 100 circular concrete tanks. Turtles on Grand Cayman range in size from 6 ounces to 600 pounds. The turtle farm also has a snack bar and restaurant where you can sample turtle dishes if you wish.
