This is a wonderful attraction that serves a wonderful purpose. There is an indoor exhibition area with details and facts about sea turtles as well as a small aquarium and there is the outdoor area which houses the pools containing the rehabilitating turtles. This is a great learning spot for kids and adults. The staff is friendly and informative and the admission cost is voluntary and nominal. Stop here on your way to or from the local beaches.

This is a wonderful place to educate children about marine life and the turtle population. Very interesting for adults and to see how the oceans turtles are injured or sick. Also how they can be nurtured back to a healthy status in the hospital there so they can be released back into the wild. Only one in 100,000 baby turtles that are hatched will make it to maturity enough to lay eggs. Trash like plastic bags are dangerous because turtles think it is a jellyfish, and fishing line gets them tangled up. A nice place to volunteer and to be really informed first hand about the life span of a turtle. They clean the barnacles off the shells and clean them as well. These turtles are what. You will see while scuba diving.

The facility itself does good work, and is open every day. It's a good size for a quick visit with kids, with many little tanks for recuperating turtles with helpful guides, and a little exhibit area. It's right on the beach with a little playground nearby, so that's a bonus if it's not too hot. We liked it for a quick visit, but not more than 1/2 hr-1 hr.

This is a wonderful marine center that takes care of turtles that have been hurt in the ocean and cares for them so they can return the the ocean when better.
