Today we decided to take a ride down to Marathon to check out the Turtle Hospital. We have been living down here in the keys first as part-timers, and now full-timers and have heard all good things about this attraction. It definitely stood up to its reputation! The tour is very educational and informative. We took our 8 year old boy who is very interested and knowledgeable in marine life and it was a great experience for all of us. Our guide was perky and passionate...she started with a slide show and talk that was accompanied by hands on props, followed by a stop into the actual hospital where the surgeries are done, and then out to the pools where the "patients" and resident sea turtles are kept. It especially hit home with us as we are out on the water whether by boat or paddle board almost everyday, and we are even more equipped with knowledge on how to help protect and support these beautiful creatures. I would recommend this attraction for people of all ages from any walk of life!
