This place does a lot of good for wounded or stranded sea turtles. we watched them tending to 2 wounded turtles. There are plenty of turtles to see. Alot of information posted about the turtles. Employees very nice & informative. Anything bought in the gift store goes to help the turtles.

Enjoyed the lecture and learned a lot about sea turtles. They do wonderful work there. Yet one more reason plastic bags should be banned everywhere.

We loved seeing all the turtles and how they are recovering and growing. This is a great place for anyone to come and see how sea turtles live and how they are rescued. Would recommend to everyone.

We had a great time seeing the rescued turtles. My 5-yr old son became more and more excited as he learned each of the turtles names!
