If at all possible, attend a release. Their goal is to rehabilitate & release. Wonderful learning experience for kids! This place was started by one man & his wife about 35 years ago, most of the helpers are volunteers or interns, their dedication is admirable.

It’s not a huge place and it’s not an aquarium where you will spend an entire day. It’s a really cool little place that rescues animals. It’s obvious from the moment you walk in that the staff love their job and the animals they care...More

This is an outstanding organization who does great work saving the seals and other marine life. It is great for the kids to be able to see and learn about the seals. This is not an aquarium, however, so don't expect that kind of experience.

Off season visit didn't have too much to see but what they did provide was interesting, mostly for kids. Having been to several large marine facilities in the past and other "stranding" sites we weren't overly impressed. Good turtle place.
