We took our 5 year old boy & 2 year old girl. They had a lot of fun looking at the sea turtles. It was free, though we bought a few items from the gift shop and made a small donation too! I recommend as a nice reprieve from the sun/beach for the kiddos.

We took our 7 year old grandson to visit the rescue. It was very informative and interesting. They go overboard on the "saving the turtles" stuff, but I expected that. It is worth the time and donation.
