Interesting set up where turtles can receive medical or surgical intervention. At time of visit 58 turtles in residence, including some hatchlings from the recent hurricane. Tour is both indoors and out and takes around 90 minutes.

$25 per adult, tour takes about 90 minutes where you learn about Turtles in Florida. Interesting, excellent guide who took the time to explain then listen to and answer questions. You get to see several turtles in all stages of rehab

This is such a unique place. Attending a learning session is a great way to support a non-profit organization. Very informative and interesting. Definitely worth the money.
