The Turtle Hospital is not a tourist attraction. It's a working wildlife rehab center who's staff and volunteers are working hard to give endangered sea turtles a much-needed second chance. The hospital gets no state or federal funding, so every dollar makes a difference in saving lives! You will be moved by the turtles' stories and learn ways that you too can help ensure their survival. Keep up the great work Turtle Hospital!

Not sure if the lady at the counter was having a bad day or if she really didn't like her job. Not very friendly, acted annoyed that it was busy. We'll visit again and hopefully we'll be greated with a smile

This is a great attraction for animal lovers, environmentalists and honestly for ANYONE visiting the Florida Keys. The Turtle Hospital is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and eventual release of injured or sick sea turtles. They do an outstanding job of educating visitors on the plight of the turtles, the perils they face, and what we can all do toward prevention without the experience becoming grim or uncomfortable. It's actually a lot of fun and it's exciting to see the turtles in recovery as well as hearing about all their success stories. VERY educational and enjoyable for kids and adults alike. This is a non-profit foundation that pours all the admission and gift shops dollars back into helping more turtles...so don't forget to buy a t-shirt!
