This was fun and informative- even for our 19 year old. Is a real turtle rescue and rehab operation. Like everything here, very laid back, takes about 90 minutes.

This is a fantastic place to bring kids and other human beings to learn more about the beloved turtle species of the world. This a must if you're in Marathon. 🐢

Our visit was great. The guide was well-informed, nice and funny and handled the tour great in general. As a bonus the admission supports the good cause. Only downside for us was that there wasn't any hatchlings the day of our visit

This place gave you a bit of insight on how they treat the turtles that have been injured. It's an education for the young, although was a bit long winded tour. Making a donation with the entry fee was good to assist in this hospital.
