Could not say a bad word about this place, free entry and had someone personally walk us through the entire facility. The staff do such a great job with what they have and do it all for the turtles.

Check the website for seasonal times. I'm not too sure. I can't see it being that much different to be honest. As long as they've got hatchlings, they'll always let you adopt.

20 min. by car. You can see turtles, from eggs, to adulthood. You can adopt a turtle and drop it into the sea.
