Wonderful educational experience from young to old. It was about 90 minutes and worth time and money. We became members of the hospital. It is for a good cause.

We visited the Turtle Hospital on our last visit to Marathon. It was well worth the stop. It was a great opportunity to see the turtles up close and learn about the rescue work that takes place to save these beautiful creatures.
