Enjoyable walk on the boardwalk. The walk up the steps to the tower is worth it to see a great view. It's great to see the rehabilitation for the sea turtles and they have a nice butterfly garden.

Gumbo Limbo is really a cool place to visit that all ages will enjoy. You'll be able to get up-close and personal with baby sharks, turtles, sting rays (which by the way feel like smooth suede) and other ocean critters. There's also a pretty cool trail walk and observation tower. The view from the top is beautiful. Gumbo Limbo also... More

Took my grandkids (4yr and 6yrs) there last March and it was great for all. Live turtles for viewing. close to beaches so you can do both in a day.

We haven't been to the Center since our children were little. Now that we have grandchildren, we thought we revisit the site, To our pleasant surprise the place has a new life and look. More turtle activity, enthusiast lectures and plenty to see for children of all ages. Well worth going to see. Tom Kozlowski

We live in Boca and we go there at least once a month, educative in the best way; (a totally none commercial place do not expect a Disney type setting there) , the team of volunteers is outstanding and very knowledgeable as well..

If you are around it is a great program for 1-2 hours. Here they rescue and research also turtles and other sea animals and you can have a nice walk tour in their park, as well.
