There is a lot of love and education packed into the Navarre Beach Sea Turtle Conservation Center. It is run by an all volunteer staff that is passionate about what they do. They have wonderful exhibits and a thoughtful selection of gift items including items made by local craftsman and photographers. Grants, admission and gift shop sales provide funding. There is plenty to do right in the area to round out the afternoon. Pier for walking and fishing, restaurants, beach access and public bathrooms nearby.

Our family enjoyed our visit here. The volunteers were great and knowledgeable. We had quite a few questions for them about the animals that they were happy to answer. There’s a cute gift shop inside. One of our children wanted to ‘dig’ for shark teeth (you buy a jar of sand and sift through it outside. All together, it probably took 30-45 minutes to get through everything, but we really took our time looking through all the the exhibits and digging for the shark teeth.

My wife suggested we go to see the sea turtle. Honestly I was not to enthused to go look at a turtle, but if your on vacation and your wife says let’s see a sea turtle, you go see a sea turtle. I kept an open mind. I learned so much about sea turtles and sweet pea tugged a bit on my heart strings. It also drew attention to my actions and the actions of my neighbors with regard to plastics! Did you know Green Sea Turtles can live about 50 years?! Grow to 325 lb? Go and learn you will not be disappointed.

My wife and I had the opportunity to visit Navarre Beach Sea Turtle Conservation Center as an activity to do on our way home from an anniversary trip in Destin. It is very much worth it to book the hands-on, private tour. The guide was very knowledgeable and taught us many things we never knew know before visiting. Seeing and learning about the resident sea turtle Sweet Pea, feeding 2 of the outside turtles Safari and Flip Flop, as well as the other portions of the tour made this a great encounter. If you or anyone in your family love animals this makes it an awesome place to visit, young or old. We actually enjoyed our trip to the NBSTCC more than our visit to the Destin Gulfarium just 2 days before. The dolphins, penguin, and other animals at the Gulfarium are neat but none of that really compares to the experience you’ll get with a private tour of Navarre Beach Sea Turtle Conservation Center. Don’t let the small size of this place fool you! The center is packed with tons of great information and is an adventure like no other. It’s a must if you’re ever in the area.
