My family loved the turtle hospital. The staff is very friendly. We learned a lot about the dangers that sea turtles face. At the end of the tour you get to visit the turtle residents and feed them.

We loved our tour at the Turtle Hospital. It was very educational and interesting. The facility and the work they do to help the injured and sick turtles is impressive. We really enjoyed seeing these beautiful creatures up close. This was definitely one of the highlights of our first trip to the Keys.

I wasn't sure if a tour of a Turtle Hospital would be interesting to my daughters, ages 13, 12, 11 & 4, but it turned out to be one of their favorite stops we made on our trip to the Florida Keys. The tour was ab out 90 minutes indoors and out. It rained a little while we were outdoors, but they offered ponchos. There wasn't enough rain for anyone to take them up on the offer, but it was nice that they were available.

The turtle hospital has 30 or 40 turtles, some recovering and slated for release back into the wild, and some in "retirement", unable to be released. We learned a lot about sea turtles and it was well worth the visit.

I was dying to visit this place because I love sea turtles! We all really enjoyed it. There was an informative lecture for about 20 mins or so, them a tour of the hospital itself where we saw a turtle having a procedure done. We then toured the grounds where all the turtles were--I think there were over 30 turtles! We got introduced to each and every one, and were told why they were here and how they were doing. We learned a lot about sea turtles in general, and loved seeing and learning about the different types of turtles. They were adorable! Definitely worth the $15, and would love to go back. Every dollar goes back to the turtle hospital!
