The Tamar project is good for the survival of the turtles, for tourists and for Aracaju which needs more attractions. . Fourteen of us visited on a very hot summer's day with ages from 6-70 years old! We saw sharks, baby turtles, adult turtles, albino...More

Not so big area, you can visit whitin one hour but clean and easy to access for a very low fare, 2 USD! They will show you how they preserve turtles, if you are lucky you can see they releasing baby turtles to the sea....More

Projeto Tamar is well recognized as a serious marine life project as a good attraction specially for kids everywhere. Unfortunately, this unit in Aracaju is far below any expectation with few samples of species, small structure and dirty whatertanks. I don't recommend.

This TAMAR needs more of everything if it is to be on a par with a similar facility near Salvador. More pools, more turtles, both adult and juvenile, more fish in the aquarium please. The place has unrealized potential and a yellow submarine (?). Rather...More

Amazing work developed by biology researchers. Feeding time is 16:30. Don't miss it! Very knowlegeable monitors. Kids love to see the sting rays and baby turtles and sharks!

If you want to give your kids a chance to learn great ways to preserve the natural environment they are going to see while in Sergipe, the Tamar Project is the place to visit.

Small but fun! Bring your kids! They have skilled staff plus some of the scientists involved in the Tamar Project. They have been doing a wonderful job in saving the sea turtles. On the downside, do not expect a tour in English or any other...More

The aquarium is quite small but the work done there is incredible! I felt it lacked someone to give explanations about the work done by Tamar project (which is normal in the other places from the project I've been).
