I've been here twice and really believe this is quite the learning experience. Unfortunately some parents should realize that some children are way too young to experience what this place was meant to be therefore more of a disturbance than a learning experience. Maybe if the Hospital had special times for these people to take in this adventure it would... More

Great for adults and children alike! You will walk away smiling knowing one man has made an amazing difference, simply because he saw the need. You will meet knowledgeable caring people on your tour. While meeting some of the turtles they have saved, some residents and some who will be released back into the sea. But mostly you will learn... More

This place was just simply amazing and well worth the price of admission. You learn so much about sea turtles and what we are doing to our oceans in such a short time. Hats off to all those working there, doing all they can do to rehabilitate the sick and injured turtles, as well as educate others in what we... More

On our last trip, my husband wasn't able to join us for a visit to Turtle Hospital, so on this trip, we made it a must do on our off day from diving. We all loved it! I think it's incredible what they do at Turtle Hospital. The lecture is very informative and interesting, you get a tour of the... More

What a great way to split your drive to Key West. Take the 90 minute tour as it's fantastic and up close and personal to all kinds of Turtles. Kids will love it!

Not the most fun tour. The groups are too large so unless you want to shove your way to the front you don't really get to see what the guide is talking about Our guide had an accent that made it even more difficult to follow along. We were bored most of the time and it is not a place... More

These people do incredible work for sea turtles. We visited there with our 4 year old daughter and we all learned so much. We'd go back there again in a heartbeat.

We stopped off at the Turtle Hospital in Marathon for the 1pm tour which was $18 each. They gave us a short introduction and a few facts about the different types of sea turtles which was rather interesting. They also told us about the different work they do as a hospital and showed us how some of the turtles had... More
