Have always been fascinated from the first time I saw a female turtle at sunset come out of the ocean to lay her eggs.

Nice facility, very informative, but really not a lot to see and do. Takes 30 minutes to an hour to tour. Did not see live turtles.

The video presentations are very informative and definitely worth watching. Maybe a little cafe would be an added bonus, but having said that, there are eateries very close by. Volunteers in the shop were very helpful and friendly.

I wanted to go here after seeing all the sea turtle trails and nests on the beach. I liked learning more and talking with the staff. I found a GREAT shirt to purchase and help fund the society. Just a great place!!!

I saw some people riding around, checking nests in the mornings, and got curious. We drove to the Sea Turtle Preservation Society, and learned a lot about sea turtles (like how HUGE they are, wow!). They were also rehabilitating a little guy, and they let us take a look at him. Very cute. You can also buy sea turtle related... More
