Don't miss it. So interesting. The story of the turtles and work being done there is remarkable. I liked the guides and handlers were willing to talk about their work. Staff was A plus.

“Very Educational and a great mission”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

This was very educational and we felt good that all proceeds goes directly to support their mission of saving injured Sea Turtles. While the facilities are small they do a great job of delivering the educational information in an interesting approach. We especially enjoyed the talk about all the resident turtles.

“Love the turtles!”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

This was my first visit to the center and while it is mostly geared towards children, I still found it very interesting. They rescue and rehab turtles and it's amazing to learn about them.

“I learned Sooooo much...”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

WOW.. What a great place to visit. I learned so much I almost got Information Overload. The staff is wonderful and will answer any questions you might have. IF you are on the Island I would say don't miss this place.

“Small but worth it”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

Very small, basically two rooms, but entirely worth it and the $7/pp goes to a good cause. The information there is fantastic, and you'll see a lot considering how small it is. We saw a turtle feeding and the turtle hospital. Fascinating. Also watched a turtle surgery, live, after it was hit by a boat. One of the coolest things I've ever done.
