This is a great seaturtle conservation organization. They have a turtle hospital and small education center. The most notable thing with this organization is the during seaturtle nesting season (May - August), they take you on guided walk to watch the turtles up close.

My wife and I didn't know much about turtles. Now we do. Wow. Please check this out. Take your time. Appreciate the time and effort made by the volunteers in regard to their efforts to rescue the turtles. We are not what I would call big animal or turtle people but this is worth seeing.

Learn about turtles from experts who circulate around the tanks and answer any questions. Great for kids of all of all ages! A small aquarium area off to the right as you enter is small, but offers a lot. I would avoid this place on a really hot day, as most of it is outside, It is free, but please... More

Good place to stop and spend an hour or two learning about the plight of sea turtles. Get to see numerous turtles rehabbing in the hospital.

The Loggerhead Marinelife Center was a tremendous experience. There is no cost to get in but they do encourage a donation to cover operating costs. Inside the center there is information about the turtles such as sizes and diet. Perhaps the most interesting part however is outside where they have large tanks with rehabilitating sea turtles. The staff at the... More

There is a great exhibition next to the entrance where we learned a lot about see turtles. This is a turtle hatchery where sick or hurt turtles are brought in. Once they are healthy enough the let them go back to the see. pore

This is a turtle rescue facility, where you can come in and see the turtles they have rescued. I am a member of the Ocean Artists Society, and I paint sea turtles a lot, and I love this place. It is a great place to visit and it does very worthwhile work. Guy Harvey did the murals on the wall... More

Informative, entertaining for the family. I liked everything, interesting gift shop,huge prehistoric turtle skeleton , lots of kids activities, gift shop seemed a little expensive but all the proceeds go to help run the place so I looked at it as a donation with a souvenir.

Review is based only on turtle release on Juno Beach, and it's free. If you visit the Marinelife Center (highly recommended), there is a fee but it's worth it. If you have never experienced a turtle release, you should plan to do so. A large crowd gathers to watch the release of these wonderful sea turtles return to their home... More

It was small but educational. Call and find out when they do the tour. They introduce u to all the animals and tell their story and u get a history lesson. Great for kids.

Great place to take the family and check out all the leatherbacks and other various turtles that they are either nursing back to health or taking care of as they can't live in the ocean due to injury/sickness/etc. They have an awesome festival (I believe) in April. We happened to be there when it was going on and it was... More
