Owner description: This is a great seaturtle conservation organization. They have a turtle hospital and small education center. The most notable thing with this organization is the during seaturtle nesting season (May - August), they take you on guided walk to watch the turtles up close.

“Educational and Inspiring”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2011

This was a last-minute side-trip during a recent Florida vacation with my girlfriend, and I'm so glad we did it.

The indoor educational center is largely geared towards children, but it does offer a lot of useful information for adults as well -- particularly regarding the many modern threats to sea turtles and marine life in general.

The large outdoor area, where we could observe adult turtles currently under the care of the Center's hospital (as well as hatchlings about to be released into the wild), was amazing. The hospital offers full profiles of each of its patients (injuries or illnesses on intake, treatment, prognosis) and progress reports on former patients. (It is truly delightful to see the up-to-date radio-tracking data on former patients who have resumed a healthy, active life in the open ocean after rehab.)

These are good people doing wonderful work with some amazing animals. This place is definitely worth a visit.

“Great place to visit!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2011

Wonderful place doing wonderful things! Not an overly large place but well worth the visit! Tour the museum inside and then walk outside to see the large tanks where there are very large turtles being treated for various injuries/illnesses. The staff are very helpful and give excellent details about the turtles!

We have been to the Loggerhead Turtle Rescue Center several times. I love the seeing the turtles. Last time we took my 17 year old there, he loved it. I recommend anyone visiting the area to stop in.

“Delightful and informative”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2011

the Loggerhead Marinelife Center in Jupiter is a gem. It has a smallish but very informative indoor exhibit and gift shop. The true treasures are the actual turtles out in the courtyard. The turtles are in indidual tanks and are in various stages of recovering from various injuries. Informative staff members and volunteers are generous with their knowledge, both specific & general about the species.
