Reviewed 24 April 2008

The new Georgia Sea Turtle Center on Jekyll Island is a must see... it is different from anything you think you've seen. It is not an aquarium, but an actual working hospital for sea turtles. You can get up close, and see how the dedicated staff care for these wonderful creatures. It is awesome for the whole family, you will leave with a big smile on your face!

Georgia Sea Turtle Center staff does an amazing job in rehabilitating sick, injured, and immature sea turtles. The center has a wonderful display area that teaches about the life cycle of the turtles and how we can help them to rebound. Housed in the old power station, the center also has a rehab area that has tanks for the turtles. Some of the turtles come from as far away as the northeastern US. On the day we visited, we were able to see a sick 180 pound sea turtle being tube fed by the dedicated workers. Check the center out & see what beautiful and amazing creatures these turtles are.
