We went to the Turtle Hospital during an overcast afternoon and it was the perfect way to spend a not so perfect day in paradise. The presentation was excellent and we all learned a lot about sea turtles that we never knew. Very interesting.

This seems slightly spendy but is so educational, entertaining, enlightening and moving that I will forever remember the experience. It is worth it and tours were every hour when we visited. Never again will I shop using plastic bags and I can only hope that sea turtles may be around when I have grandchildren. This is a fabulous combination of... More

Love this place. Very educational tour and information on sea turtle. It's money well spent for 1.5 hours. Must visit when in Marathon. Have lots of respect for what they do. Great job!

I took my 2 children to this attraction. We learned a ton and found it very interesting and astonishing that they knew each turtles story and history. One reason I had a hard time giving it a 5 star was it was very hard to hear everything the guide was telling us. Even though she was very knowledgeable she seemed... More

My family and I visited the Turtle Hospital in May. It was such an awesome place. We actually got to watch a small part of a surgery removing some tumors from a rescued sea turtle. The hospital rescues turtles hurt by boats or entangled in fishing line. This was my favorite spot we visited on our vacation! Definitely go if... More

Definitely make reservations before showing up. We were there in July and early in the week, so my husband was sure we wouldn't need reservations, but since I had read Tripadvisor and seen this was highly recommended, we did make them. When we got there, we were watching them turn people away, right and left or else try to find... More

I really enjoyed my visit. The guide was informative and fun. The turtles were amazing. I am so glad that this place is here to help the turtles. I highly recommend a visit. Make a reservation early to get the time you want for a tour.

We ran across the Turtle Hospital while on trip advisor looking for things to do in Middle Keys area. So glad we called and booked a time to come in... We loved this little side-trip. Our tour guide was very informative and personable. I can't remember his name but heel was from Pennsylvania and had dark curly hair. We learned... More

My family of 4 visited the Turtle Hospital. Both my 15 and 10 year old loved it. The tour lasts about 90 minutes and it is a good mix of education and getting to see stuff. I would recommend having a reservation. We did not, but got lucky and only had to wait about an hour for the next available... More
