lot of money but worth every single cent. Helping the Turtles in a way like this is fantastic! With a tour of 90min you have value for your money. Ask also when they will release a turtle and where as when you are lucuky, as we were, you can witness the release of a healthy turtle.

Presentation at beginning is short and informative. Good setting inside with AC. Rules are firm regarding the tour. You should read them. Small gift shop.

Wonderful educational experience from young to old. It was about 90 minutes and worth time and money. We became members of the hospital. It is for a good cause.

One of the most education and enjoyable tours I have ever been on. To see and learn how this turtles get injured by us and care for by this non-profit organization is fanominal. It was an eye opener.

Learning about sea turtles and the challenges they face was very interesting. Our guide was informative and knowledgeable. A film was offered, short lectures about the turtles and the care they receive were given. We were able to see the turtles up close after learning about them and why they were brought into the hospital. It's great that there's a... More

My wife and I went there recently and we loved it. We learned a lot about turtles. We learned about which turtles live in our area. It was informative about how they treat sick and injured turtles. We watched a surgeon treat a turtle which had growths on it. Our guide was very good about telling us about the turtles... More
