Great place for any age group. Very informative although felt a little rushed and herded on the tour. A fantastic place with lovely staff who are doing a reat job.
I love the Turtle Hospital. There is an hour and a half information session with a tour of the turtles being helped. It is great information - even a small piece of cellophane can kill a turtle, I had no idea. You get an up close look at several turtles and at the end you can feed them lettuce -... More
I didn't know so much about turtles and all the problems they can encounter in their life. The staff explained so well about all kind of turtles and how the hospital works. From the word of the staff you can perceive the enthusiasm and the joy to work with turtles. We visited the pools where turtles are, you don't feel... More
Please please visit the hospital and support their work! The tour is very interesting! Although turtles aren't the most adorable animals, somehow the tour makes me attached to the turtles and want to help them out.

The guided tour was very entertaining and we got the chance to ask lots of questions, all of which were answered with expertly and with confidence. We never normally buy gift shop gifts but the...

The turtle hospital has been around for years doing grab things ith sea turtles. They sponsor a clinic each December bringing Vet staff from around the world to share experiences on working with these endangered animals……..A Must see
We'd never heard of this place until our boat guide at Pennecamp State Park mentioned it. Definitely worth the visit. It was amazing to see so many sea turtles up close. Heartbreaking injuries, and we knew nothing of the virus that causes tumors. So glad to know of their work. Call before visiting, though. Tour schedules change, and we were... More
