Trip Planner: USA / Texas / Texas Gulf Coast / South Padre Island / Sea Turtle, Inc.
Since 1977, Sea Turtle, Inc. has grown from a concerned conservation group to include a hospital and rehabilitation center. Numerous sea turtles get hurt by predators or fishermen, and their eggs get lost due to urbanization. That threatens the balance of the ecosystem and leads to large reductions of sea life. At the center, you can hear about sea turtles and about the organization's efforts to protect all marine turtle species. You'll see tanks with different kinds of turtles--some injured and some nearly cured--and learn about the ways they are rehabilitated before being returned to the wild. Donations are welcome. Arrange your visit to Sea Turtle, Inc. and discover more family-friendly attractions in South Padre Island using our South Padre Island online trip itinerary builder.

I love this place. Beautiful sea turtles deserve to be saved. They have that right to live like we do. The museum is awesome, and the gift shop is great too. They also have Alligators. If they want to come out , I didn't see them this time . I still wonder why they even have Alligators. I never remember the island having alligators at all. Gators are super dangerous..😱Remember to come by and support anyway you can to keep helping and saving Sea turtles.. Happy Health to All....
This center is for the rehabilitation of hurt sea turtles. The whole family enjoyed this place. They were closing early due to the weather so we were not able to participate in the Turtle Talks. The facility explains about each turtle in rehabilitation and how they have progressed during their care at the facility. The staff is very knowledgeable and caring. They have a wonderful gift shop and the part, if not all of the proceeds from your purchase goes back to the facility. This is a great trip for the family and to let kids see all sizes of turtles.
