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.

We took a quick trip here and we're not disappointed. The facilities are very clean and easy to explore. You can get very close to the turtles and watch them swim and learn their stories from the employees or the informative signs placed at each tank. It is amazing what they do for these great animals.

We always hit this spot on a visit to Juno Beach. Its a great free activity with kids. It is a turtle rehab spot. Also access to the beach. There is a small gift shop with beach/turtle items. Small but free and perfect for young kids.

Wonderful place to take kids! Large tanks holding some very large loggerhead turtles who are on the road to recovery. Terrific staff ready to explain why they are there and their history and rehab. Interactive kid friendly displays, along with aquarium, fish tanks, turtle hospital, and a gift shop full of everything

Loggerhead Center is a fabulously informative, and I would have to say, a joyful place to visit. Once you pass through a inside information center that introduces you to what the center does you go outside to meet and greet the turtles. So well cared for and each turtle has it's own biography. It was heart warming to see these... More

There's something for everyone in the family to enjoy. They have an excellent (free) Turtle Fest in the spring with lots of activities for children.

This is probably the best value attraction in the area. Admission is free but donations are gratefully accepted. There is an engaging and educational exhibit hall but the main attraction is the outdoor tank ward where recovering sea turtles are recuperating from a number of ailments. All the patients have names and interesting stories; visitors can follow their progress from... More

Had been dying to go here and it was as good as expected. It is a hospital for injured sea turtles. You can watch as the turtles receive treatment, and hangout in their tanks. There is no admission but we of course donated some money since it is such a good cause. This is a great place to have an... More

Sanctuary for sea turtles needing rehabilitation, great people doing amazing work to help these magnificent creatures. Well worth the trip; adopt a turtle while you're there to help the programs out!

We actually visited the LMC two times...the first was to see all the sea turtles in the outdoor recovery tanks. We learned the turtles came for care from far and wide; for example, one was brought to the center from Cape Cod with frostbite. During our first visit, we learned that a 300 lb. loggerhead named Elsa was to be... More

Although it's free entry you would be pretty mean not to make a donation. This lovely turtle hospital gives you the opportunity to see turtles close up. They are not in their natural environment because they are being rehabilitated from injuries and illnesses. All the caring staff can tell you about each and every turtle and their reason for being...
