So cool!

I love turtles and I wanted to check this place out to see how they save turtles. I definitely think it's worth the money... all proceeds go to the saving of turtles.

The turtles were very cute. It was interesting to learn about all the turtles! It was cool that you get to have the chance to adopt one of the permanent sea turtles!

I'm absolutely fascinated with Sea Turtles and the Staff was very polite, funny and informational about each species of sea turtle. The ones they take care of have individual names and the young lady that gave us the tour was absolutely in love with all of the turtles and it showed. Was worth every dollar we spent!

If you love wild live, especially sea turtles than this is a place to go. We loved every minute, and we learned a lot. It's just very sad how badly some of the turtles are injured due to human influence!

Staff has a great knowledge and understanding of the turtles and is willing to answer any questions. Guided tour is a must for anyone who likes aquariums. Money goes to a great cause and turtle hospital is a Non profit
