Great place for families, schools, kids or people who care about nature! The job they do is HIGHLY valuable for the endangered turtles they rescue and rehab... mostly from the damage HUMANS inflict upon nature! Great place, GREAT cause!!

My daughter really wanted to take the tour. I was less interested. But I really enjoyed it! The tour is very informative with lots of opportunities for questions. The history of the place is interesting. And there are so many turtles! This ended up being a highlight of our trip

We were driving up the coast and came across the Turtle Hospital. It is a Great hidden gem to visit. Great for families, animal lovers and philanthropy donors. The work they do, is amazing! All ages were there learning about turtles, how they are affected and how it all began.
