“Thanks for caring for the turtles!”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

My husband and I visited with our ten year old daughter and we all enjoyed learning about the turtles! We were able to make a reservation that morning for later in the afternoon. We toured the facility and got up close looks at the turtles - no touching though. We are glad to see the turtles getting help and rehabilitation from injuries and diseases that we humans have inflicted on them in the first place. Though there are some permanent turtle residents here, so many more are able to be released back into the ocean!

“Always fun.”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

Our second visit to the turtle hospital as we brought some friends with us this time. Its very educational if you take your time to read the information in the office on the different types of turtles. Pollution is a major thyme of the tour as turtles will eat anything floating in the ocean and they show you the effects. A place everyone should stop and see.

“Very Interesting!”
Reviewed 5 July 2014 via mobile

Our 16 year old daughter wanted to visit here. I wasn't sure what to expect and was pleasantly surprised. Make sure you call to make reservations first. Very educational and interesting. Kudos to those that run and provide this much needed service for turtles. They brought in a hatchling while we were there. So cute! Highly recommend a visit here.

“Educational and interesting”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

While I am not a big fan of turtles, this tour was interesting and a productive way to spend some time out of the water while in the Keys. Our 7 and 10 year old grandchildren who were traveling with us weren't sure they wanted to go but ended up having a good time. If you have a special interest in marine life and turtles in particular, you should not pass up this tour. Plan ahead and make reservations.
