Marine Turtle Protection Center
Help save turtles by swimming with themNot much beats swimming with sea turtles, but you’ll probably need to spend several hours in the lagoon to have much chance of encountering one in the wild. Otherwise, visit the Marine Turtle Protection Center at Le Meridien Bora Bora. Guests and non-guests alike are welcome to observe—and swim with—growing juveniles and rehabilitating older turtles in a protected lagoon. The most common species are green and hawksbill turtles, which can grow up to three to five feet long. The area also acts as a coral nursery, where the reef can regenerate and thrive.
