1,5h full of interesting facts. You get to see the entire facility incl. medical room and outdoor area (water tanks etc.). It is really educational, even a bit emotional at times :)
I do believe it is worth to visit and support this facility.

Visited the Sea Turtle Hospital in Marathon. A wonderful educational experience that lasts about 90 minutes. The cost is 25 per person with proceeds going toward the care and rehab of these magnificent creatures. You get to go behind the scenes and see the turtles being cared for. You also get the opportunity to feed them. The hospital entrance area has a small gift shop with books, shirts, and jewelry. A great way to spend part of your day while visiting the Keys.

While visiting the area we decided to spend the time to go here. SO glad we did. The tour takes about an hour and a half. Starts with a very informative slide show presentation and then on the turtles! They are all so cute even if they are injured. Poor things!
Our guide was nice and knowledgeable. For sure take the time to visit!!

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.
