Learned a lot about turtles! Our tour guide was great, very upbeat and knowledgeable. Willing to take any questions from the group. The tour was interesting and hands on, liked the short video but the feeding and walking around the re-hab areas was the best part.

Just GO! Wonderful visit to the Turtle Hospital. Aiden was a wonderful tour guide. We all learned so much and really enjoyed seeing all the turtles and seeing their facilities. Great gift shop and educational area to walk through at the beginning or end too. Fun feeding the turtles at the end too. Thanks for a fun afternoon. Make a reservation and if you can't find a parking spot wait for the tour ahead of you to wrap up.

My daughter and I visited The Turtle Hospital today and Melissa was our tour guide. She gave a very informative and entertaining presentation. The turtles are adorable and you can’t help but want to help these guys in any way possible. I highly recommend visiting The Turtle Hospital when in Marathon!

What a wonderful experience! Loved getting to see the turtles up close and feeding the turtles in the big pool. Our guide was very knowledgeable and I learned a lot about different types of turtles and the impacts humans have on them. They also have a great little gift shop and "museum" you can visit before or after your tour. Great work is being done here and it is a must-visit on your trip to the Keys!

It was very educational! Came up close to injured turtles who were recovering. The staff were very professional. The guide was extremely enthusiastic and did a great job explaining things. I learned quite a bit about sea turtles. The pictures were great.

Amazing experience. The work they are doing there is simply amazing. The educational experience helped provide an understanding why turtles are brought to the hospital and how the recovery process works. The total tour is about an hour and a half an would encourage everyone to visit if given the opportunity.

Definitely a fun and educational experience. The young guide, Mackenzie was very well informed and enthusiastic. We started with an informational talk then walked around this former hotel turned turtle hospital to see the turtles and learn about why they were there. Many had "bubble butt" - go to find out what that means. The facility seemed well run and the turtles were well cared for.
