Highly recommend. Tour is well organized, very informative and fun. Kids love it. You will see a few dozen sea turtles, and even feed them.

This was fun and informative- even for our 19 year old. Is a real turtle rescue and rehab operation. Like everything here, very laid back, takes about 90 minutes.

Our visit was great. The guide was well-informed, nice and funny and handled the tour great in general. As a bonus the admission supports the good cause. Only downside for us was that there wasn't any hatchlings the day of our visit

You have to call the hospital at 305-743-2552 to book a place on one of their tours. They have daily tours every hour from 9:00 am until 4:00 pm. When we were there last week, they had about 30 turtles.
