We visited the hospital recently, and I have to say no trip to the keys is complete without a trip to this must see place. We had a great experience and would recommend this trip to everyone, very educational and worth the $18 per person entrance fee.

My wife and I love this place. They offer a 90 minute tour where they show the hospital facilities and all of the patients. Sea turtles are very hard to spot in the wild, so this is an easy way to see them up close. If you are visiting the Keys, go to the Turtle Hospital. Simple as that.

This is a very educational experience for everyone. However the attention span of young children is very limited and the talk that is given before children get to look at the turtles is a little too long to keep their attention. This is the second time I've been here with adults. This past time was very hard to take with children acting out when they get bored. It's a shame that parents can't recognize this .

Our 17 year old girls loved it and learned alot about turtles. A great activity for a overcast day. Worth the time. Good cause. Make a reservation.

Great place to spend a couple hours learning (I guarantee it) and spending time with the "patients". The lecture is informative and the tour of the turtle tanks is inspiring!
