Driving from Key West to Miami can be a long drive, so if you need to get out and stretch your legs, stop here. A great hour and a half tour/talk about all the turtles that are there. Liz was very informative and you can tell she enjoys her job. Then again, who wouldn't love working with turtles to get... More

They have several turtles there and give you a history of each one of them and if they will be able to be released. We got to see all of them. It you are lucky you might... More

I visited the turtle hospital while staying Key West and it was a great time. They do a wonderful tour and there was plenty of time to look at all the turtles and talk to the staff about how they care for the turtles.

Fantastic place doing great work. Informative, heart-warming and a must do while in the Keys. It was wonderful to see the turtles up close, and to learn about what great work they are doing to help rehabilitate them. Worth every penny.

The turtle hospital goes all out to care for the many injured turtles that come into their care from injuries courtesy mostly of people. The tour introduced us individually to about 35-40 turtles of different variety. It seemed expensive at $22 per adult for the 1.5 hour tour, but knowing that the admission goes for the care of these animals... More

Located on Marathon Key just before the 7 Mile bridge, is a wonderful facility the rescues, rehabilitates and releases sea turtles. Informative tours run on the hour from 10 - 6. I would recommend making reservations as the tours fill up. The tour starts out in a classroom like setting run by a very knowledgeable staff member. She discussed the... More

Short but lots of information. All money goes to keeping the hospital going. Worth a stop. The pollution and boats affecting these beautiful animals is so sad. But education is one of the best ways to help.
