This is a great seaturtle conservation organization. They have a turtle hospital and small education center. The most notable thing with this organization is the during seaturtle nesting season (May - August), they take you on guided walk to watch the turtles up close.

Spent an enjoyable few hours learning about turtles in the small museum, seeing the turtles that are being rehabilitated and talking to the wonderful volunteers helping these turtles recuperate in order to be reintroduced to their natural habitat. Such an incredible creature and we are so glad that we stopped. There is no entry fee, but donations are welcome.

No admission fee to get into this attraction, but they do ask for a donation which is optional. However, you really should donate. This place is small, but is wonderful and educational on life of sea turtles and how this place rescues injured turtles and hatchlings that didn't make it out to sea. The staff is very nice. Our kids... More

We visited this free attraction/marine life center/research location on a weekend day. It was very busy. It was very hot, and it ended up raining, with lightning. They quickly moved everyone away from the outdoor exhibits to covered areas or inside. They blocked off the exhibits and even with staff present, people still tried to go under the yellow tape!...

This place is worth the 1-2 hour visit. The volunteers were knowledgeable and helpful. Nice gift shop with acceptable prices.

Took our child there, was very educational. Taught about the endangered species and how the baby turtles are hatched and how few make it to adulthood. Got to see rescue turtles in habitats and learn about their perils and the work to get them rehabilitated to go back to the wild

This is a must see if you are visiting the area. You learn about, see, and help the animals here. It's very clear that this facility is an invaluable resource for the protection of sea turtles.

I visited for the hatchling release and ecologist beach walk programs. Both were very interesting and very different. The hatchling release program lasted about 2 hours 15 minutes. Two hours of explaining the marine center mission and turtle egg laying process. The volunteers also explained how they were healing turtles in the hospital. There were several different types of sea... More

This was a great little stop. There is a small aquarium with some fossils and good information. It was easy to see the turtles and learn about their health. We could observe several treatments and the caregivers were happy to explain. There are many large tanks in a shaded area. If you are hitting the beach or like turtles, take... More

This is a marine rehab center. The volunteers and staff are wonderful and always willing to answer questions. The turtles are in very good hands. It's nice to know most if not all will be released once healed. It's great to see the turtles up close too!

Love nature and the animals, this was great not just for kids but for any animal lover. We and our friends adopted a turtle, and also went on a release that night was was a lifetime experience. This place is free to visit all they ask is for donation which is not pushed upon you. We did pay for the... More
