“They've got a good thing going on for the turtles”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014

We enjoyed this educational segue. The turtle hospital is an admirable establishment. If I was an injured turtle, I pray that I'd end up there. They have a top notch facility and they really care. My children and I really enjoyed hearing about this great endeavor. God bless them. BTW, this is great for small children along with everyone else.

“Amazing work”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014 via mobile

I learned a lot of turtles and the awesome work of doctors that save them. They show visitors the before pictures of the unfortunate human impact of trash & fishing and successful after pictures of the healed turtles. You cannot touch turtles because they protected and they have salmonella. Not to mention hard mouths that can bite into shellfish. The tour starts with understanding the difference between turtle species, then you go to the turtle emergency room, and lastly the patients' tanks. It's great for all ages!

“Very Informative”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014

The short informative class before the tour was great. The visit to the hospital area was perfect for the kids and the tour of the holding tanks was excellent.

“WOW!!! So informative and interactive!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014 via mobile

This was more than we could hope for! Our guide explained SOOOO much to us about these beautiful creatures! We learned so much about the sea turtles! It is about a 1 1/2 hour tour, where you even get to feed the turtles.

Please take the opportunity to experience this. You will be happy you did
