“Ok”
Reviewed 11 December 2013

The tour was very boring because I had a hard time understanding the person that gave the tour and I also felt like it was too much like a classroom. It would have been better to move more quickly over things and let people ask questions after. It was fun feeding the sea turtles.

“A great way to spend a couple of hours”
Reviewed 11 December 2013

Turtle Hospital is a great place to visit and is very well laid out with good information displays about all the local species of Turtle. The guided tour was very entertaining and we got the chance to ask lots of questions, all of which were answered with expertly and with confidence. We never normally buy gift shop gifts but the trinkets were so well priced and knowing that the profits get put back into helping the turtles we ended up buying several presents for Christmas. Keep up the good work!!!

“One of a kind place”
Reviewed 8 December 2013

We'd never heard of this place until our boat guide at Pennecamp State Park mentioned it.
Definitely worth the visit. It was amazing to see so many sea turtles up close.
Heartbreaking injuries, and we knew nothing of the virus that causes tumors.
So glad to know of their work.
Call before visiting, though. Tour schedules change, and we were lucky to slip into the last one of the day.

“The Turtle Hospital is a great place to visit and a great cause”
Reviewed 8 December 2013

We have been to the turtle hospital twice, and it is really cool. They have a super staff, it is really interesting to visit, and I highly recommend it to visitors of all ages. It is one of my sons' favorite attractions in the Keys.
