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.

One of my favorite places! Staff is very knowledgeable & friendly. Sea turtles are very well taken care of & easy to view as well.

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.

Stopped here not knowing exactly what to expect. Pleasantly surprised. Learned about the organization's efforts to rehabilitate injured sea turtles. Various sizes of tanks contain various sizes of turtles. Cards by each tank explain what injury the turtle sustained. We were fortunate to have arrived in time to see the feeding of one of the older turtles. The organization is currently having a new, improved facility constructed adjacent to the existing facility. No charge to go through, but they take donations. Plus, in the gift store, they're accepting donations for their new facility.
