Don't let the small size fool you. This facility combines educational talks, close up views of ailing/recovering turtles and dedication to create a wonderful place to visit - expected to stay a few minutes and stayed a few hours.

These people work hard to rescue and help turtles survive. Its runs on donations. So I gave a liitle more than recommended donation. Definitely worth seeing.

The staff are totally dedicated to their mission to saving turtles! It is an educational, fun trip. It takes less than an hour and the gift shop is quaint.

They are doing great work rehabbing sea turtles here. Very nice place to visit and learn about while supporting their cause.

This a great place to visit.They do an incredible work with the turtles. We learned a lot about their work and how they help the turtle. It is free, but they ask for donations. My kids loved! Cool place to go!

What a cool place. The opportunity to see different species of sea turtles up close. Turtles that would not have a chance if not for Sea Turtle Inc. Love that you can read about their individual stories as you travel through the center. A must-see!

The work they do here is amazing. The fee to get in is a recommended donation, but so worth it when you learn about what this rescue does for the turtle population.Check out the gift shop too. They have fund souvenirs for all.

There aren't a lot of activities or attractions on San Padre island. This is a great place to stop in and learn about the sea turtles. The suggested donation is reasonable and goes toward keeping this species off the endangered list. Plus who doesn't want...More

We spent 15 minutes here walking around and looking at the turtles. Totally worth the stop. It's certainly not a big place and was pretty crowded when we arrived.
