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!
