The work these folks do trying to help these turtles is amazing. Program is very informative and getting to see the turtles as they recooperate is great. Makes you really think about all we do that affect our oceans.

Turtle's are my favorite animal so this stop was a must. Our tour guide was friendly. This tour was very informational and fun. I loved getting to see all the turltes that have been rescued and hearing their stories. Learned alot of things I did not know about turtles. If you have a love of animals this is a must stop

The staff gave a great tour . You get to see up close what they are doing to save these precious Sea Turtles that we as humans injure. I plan to adopt a Sea Turtle to help support them.

It consists of a short presentation about turtles and species, a tour of emergency and operation rooms and a visit to their "patients". You will see turtles treated in a real hospital! It is worth a visit because you learn what a non profit organization can do for the world and for ourselves. It is clean, well organized and the staff is very very kind. Take a stop and have a look. 15$ admission fee.
