Donation to enter. It is worth stopping in for a few minutes. In just a few minutes you get a better understanding of the life of these Sea Turtles.

We have been visiting Sea Turtles Inc for almost 30 years, since it was housed in the founder's residence. We love to go each winter & visit the turtles who are in residence. The staff & interns continue to learn new things about rescuing the endangered animals, and we are always eager to hear from them.
We always send first-time visitors here; never had anyone disappointed.

Beautiful place to take your children to teach them about sea turtles. We adopted a hatchling to teach our child the value of giving instead of receiving yet another toy.
