A visit here was one of those times where you think 'I'll give it a go' and are thoroughly pleased that you did. The Turtle Hospital does not try and sell itself as an attraction as such - it is more a tour around what they do, how they do it, why and most importantly, how you can help. There... More

You need to go there. Interesting things you learn. Close to the tranquility resort and therefore easy to reach.

Went to the Turtle Hospital on recommendations on Trip Advisor and it was amazing. Brilliant education on the animals and the tour was informative and very enjoyable; there are a number of turtles to see so definitely worth the money ($18 per adult). Only 90 minutes so doesn't take too long, time goes by pretty quickly. Had people in our... More

This is a must stop. Great things are always happening here. Very educational tour. You get to see the treatment rooms inside the clinic and you get to visit both long term and short stay turtles in their tanks. Amazing how visitor friendly the turtles are. You are not allowed to touch any turtles but they definitely like to show... More

Aside from the world is ending for all turtles 30 minute speech, it was a wonderful experience to see all the turtles. Lots of picture opportunities, and even got to see baby turtles swimming around ( omg sooo cute).

The Turtle Hospital is an amazing non-profit in Marathon, Fl. Easy to find. There are restrooms outside, and a Subway across the main street. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes and sunscreen as part of the tour is outside, but not a long walk. Make your reservations in advance as the slots fill up quickly. Good educational experience for All... More

Place was very clean, well maintained and run. They are doing great work here with saving injured turtles and releasing them. Great tour with a lot of fun facts....kids loved it, and so did I ! Even made a donation to "adopt" one of the turtles upon our return.

This facility is exactly what i imagine a truly animal-focused place to be. It was not about money making, it was not touristy. We were given a presentation by a very lovely woman from the team about the types of sea turtles and the main reasons why they end up at the hospital. She was highly knowledgable and she took...
