“Excellent place to visit”
Reviewed July 24, 2013 via mobile

The Sea Turtle Center has an excellent exhibit and does wonderful conservation work. This is our second visit here and we have thoroughly enjoyed what we saw. I would love the ability to see and learn more and they do have some ride along programs that sound very interesting. However these programs are a little more than i want to spend. The Center needs all the funding they can get so I don't think they are overcharging. You won't be disappointed with this exhibit!

“Sea Turtle Center”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

We visited the Sea Turtle Center on a recent visit to Jekyll Island. We enjoyed the exhibited and found it quite interesting. However it did not take very long to tour the exhibit and seemed rather short for the cost viewing the exhibit. Yet, we don't regret spending the extra money to go through the Center.

“Fun and Educational”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

We enjoyed visiting the Sea Turtle center and learned a lot too. It was a great place to see the turtles close up and get an idea of how much work these people do to try to keep them around. The staff were very helpful. There was a long line as we were buying our tickets but the woman at the desk took the time to explain what we were going to see and point out some things we shouldn't miss.

“Doing great work, but not worth the price”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

They do great work and the exhibits (though very small) were educational and interesting, the staff in the gift shop/ticket area were the rudest people we've dealt with in a facility such as this. We even decided against buying merchandise after them being so rude.

“Found my Brick!”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

I hadn't been to the island in about 5 years. My how things have changed! It was still calm and quiet on the island. Lots of families and it was nice to relax on the beach!
