My husband & I happened to be vacationing on World Sea Turtle Day. The Sea Turtle Preservation Society had a nice little party going on at the time for the public. They also made it easy for people to learn about sea turtles & sign up to do some conservation. They also had a nice gift shop.

When we went out to the Turtle conservatory last time we sat on the overlook near the water and we could see the nests right in front of us! At night you can walk out there and watch the babies hatching and going out to the sea!

It was a truly magical experience to watch a mama loggerhead turtle lay her eggs and protect her nest. I prayed for the chance to see this phenomena for a long time and my dreams came true. The best 15 dollars you could spend! The volunteers are very knowledgable and accommodating. A great activity for solo travelers, couples, and families.

This is a wonderful attractive, informative and inviting place to visit --- free of charge! We brought adult and youngsters from 'up north' to learn more about our Turtles and they thoroughly enjoyed the hands on displays as well as the films. What was expected to be a short stop turned into a longer enjoyable amount of time. Great view... More

If, you have other things to do...time better spent, elsewhere. Read a book at the beach. Walk, swim at the beach.

If you always wanted to see a sea turtle, you must book here. This was a great experience. We booked a walk at the end of July. The staff were friendly and knowledgable. The guests stay in the center until the scouts find a nesting turtle and we thought it was going to be a bust. The program started at... More

We had heard about the Turtle Walks so we made our reservation before our vacation. The night of our visit, we thought we might lose our money since there are no refunds but the lightening subsided and the tour went on even in the rain. The volunteers go out looking for nesting turtles while we listened to a volunteer give... More
