Description UP TO DATE VISITING INFORMATION: The current public interface for the DTRP is our OUTDOOR turtle rehabilitation enclosure located WITHIN the JUMEIRAH AL NASEEM hotel. The enclosure is open to the public every day (NEVER CLOSES) of the week; there is no need to book, and there is no charge. We will have a small scheduled feeding starting at 11 am EVERY WEDNESDAY ONLY (WITHOUT EXCEPTION) that anyone is welcome to join; feeding takes about 20 minutes. Feeding priority is given to children, and the opportunity to feed is not guaranteed, although we try our best to make everyone happy. There is metred parking outside on beach road, free parking for two hours in the Madinat Souq car park (approximately a 10-minute walk away) or you can valet park, but please note there will be a charge of AED150 for valet parking unless you use one of the food and beverage outlets; we encourage people to utilise the Madinat Souq car park.

Please remember when visiting that all the turtles are in the enclosure because they are sick or injured and that you are coming to see the turtles during their recovery.
