Turtle Pack was founded by award-winning swimming teacher Michael Harkins whilst he was studying a Master’s Degree in Pharmaceutical Chemistry at Heriot Watt University.
Turtle Pack is based in Stirling, Scotland.
As your child’s confidence and coordination improves in the water, the product's buoyancy can be easily reduced by removing the foam shells.
Turtle Pack has been designed keep children in a doggy paddle-like position in the water, so will not force their face into the pool. We do, however, strongly recommend that you hold your child's hands and support them as they grow accustomed to the product and the buoyancy it provides.
