  • Neat center with windowed tanks so kids of all ages can see rehabilitating sea turtles. The volunteers are very knowledgeable and friendly. They were hosting a beach cleanup when we arrived, and also have an activity area for hands-on learning for older children. Our toddler loved walking around the little garden, and the park area right outside gives plenty of space for running around. Center also has bathrooms, an indoor museum area, cafe, and gift shop. Really enjoyed our morning here.
  • Great experience. Good for kids and adults. Very informative experience with knowledgeable and friendly staff and volunteers. Center has a gift shop, indoor info center, hospital and outdoor tanks with multiple turtles bring rehabilitated. Outdoor area is covered and there are plenty of fans to help stay cool.
  • This is an amazing place. It's great for families and anyone who loves nature. You get to see beautiful, amazing, sea turtles up close...but they are not captive in a zoo. They are being rehabilitated so they can return to the wild where they belong.
  • Excellent place to take kids. We saw everything clearly, this center really keeps the turtles clean and well maintained. They dont keep them in tanks unless they wont survive in the wild. They take care of them and then release them once they are safe to go. Its educational and clean place. Its a non profit the admission its free but donations are highly recommended for its a huge help to keep these creatures healthy.
  • So we went here a couple years back with our son and he had a great time. Our daughter is 5 and despite the fact that you can get to see marine animals up close, she was very upset by some of the more injured and sick sea turtles. So note to self, perhaps this is not an appropriate place to take a child under 7 or 8 years of age. Other than that the gift shop is great you can't really spend more than an hour here because of the size of the place so plan to make it part of a broader day of exploration. I would not consider this a five-star event simply because although educational there is just not much to do.
