Went here while camping in Key Largo. The entire family enjoyed seeing what these wonderful people are doing to help the turtles in need. Would definitely recommend anyone who finds themselves in or near Marathon, Fl to stop by and take the tour.

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.
