What to Expect at the Mai Khao Marine Turtle Foundation Phuket, Thailand:
First of all, it was a long scooter ride from Chalong and it took about an hour.
The Mai Khao Marine Turtle Foundation is located inside the JW Marriott Phuket Resort & Spa. If you ask any of the hotel employees, they’ll kindly show you how to get there.
The feeding session starts from 11am to 12pm. The host speaks about the turtles for a few minutes.
We weren’t able to hear him that well because his mic wasn’t working. Also, there were many loud guests and children.
I believe there are about 6 turtles; a few of them are blind and a few injured.
After the host finished speaking, most of the children crowded up around him to get some food for the turtles. A few minutes later, the host walked by and gave us some food to feed the turtles.
After feeding the turtles, we walked around the beautiful Mai Khao beach.
Attending the feeding session is free.
Just in case, here’s a link to their website:
If you’re willing to go on a long drive or ride by scooter, the Mai Khao Marine Turtle Foundation can be an interesting visit.
Again, if you have any questions or comments, please let me know.
Thank you for your time!
