My daughter really wanted to take the tour. I was less interested. But I really enjoyed it! The tour is very informative with lots of opportunities for questions. The history of the place is interesting. And there are so many turtles! This ended up being a highlight of our trip

Everyone should stop here to see the importance of conserving nature. It was so endearing to see sick turtles being taken care of so well.

We were driving up the coast and came across the Turtle Hospital. It is a Great hidden gem to visit. Great for families, animal lovers and philanthropy donors. The work they do, is amazing! All ages were there learning about turtles, how they are affected and how it all began.

Had a couple of friends in from South Carolina who wanted to visit the turtle hospital. We decided to join them and had an absolutely fantastic time learning about the turtles. Your tour starts off with guided slideshow all about turtles. After the guided slideshow you're taken out to the holding pools to visit the vast array of different turtles... More

The tour is very informative and full of just the right amount of education. You get to tour the facility to see all of the turtles up close. Our tour guide was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. It is worth the $22 for the 90 minute experience.

Was reluctant to visit at first, afraid adults would get bored. Glad I was wrong, educational and entertaining. Can get very close to the turtles and see the injuries and rehab efforts of the staff. Good local history and a true hospital w/o exploiting the turtles. Kids couldn't stop taking pictures
