Pay for the 90 minute tour and support the amazing work these people do to save these turtles! You will learn a lot about the different turtles and the types of injuries they treat. And best of all you can meet the turtles in the pool.

We visited here in September and loved every minute of it! It is very interesting to see the work these dedicated people do to help and save the turtles. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly and very imformative. We saw saw several turtles that had had their shells damaged by boats or other reasons that just floated, they could not survive in the wild and had been rescued and brought here either to be treated if possible and released or to make it their home for the rest of their lives. We also saw brand new 2 day old babies! All in all it was a good visit and if you go there you won't be sorry!

It was great! So exciting and educational about turtles. You get to see them up close and even feed them. Would definitely recommend!

I have no regrets paying for this tour, because I know the money is used to rehabilitate or home sick and/or injured sea turtles.

That said, my family and myself found the tour just average. Very interesting learning about the various species of turtules but after an hour of viewing injured turtles, we were ready to depart and let the incredible team get back to attending to the turtles.
