Turtles at SEA LIFE

SEA LIFE's Rescued Sea Turtles

See Cora and Ziva, our two rescued green sea turtles, in our breathtaking underwater ocean tunnel. You can usually catch them swimming overhead in our 360-degree ocean tunnel or wedged between a rock to take an underwater nap. Green sea turtles cannot breathe underwater, but did you know that they can hold their breath for up to 7 hours while they're napping or resting?! Woah!

Full of personality, they often come face to flipper with you as they are curious creatures. Both victims of boat strikes, we give them extraordinary care and an amazing forever home at SEA LIFE Arizona because they are unable to return to the wild.

WHOA - You Need to SEA This!

  • Cora and Ziva love eating veggies, and you can sometimes spot a sea turtle feeding too!
  • Cora has a temporary weight patch to help her swim and dive properly
