This is my favorite place on the entire island. It's fantastic what they are doing to help the animals. The staff is so friendly and helpful. It's a great place to visit and learn some interesting about the turtles. They have a great setup there, and fun to learn about the total count of next. Also they have some extra adventures I'd ask about, including sunrise turtle walk. CHECK IT OUT!
My kids enjoyed this a lot (11 and 9). It is pretty small, one building has the patients in and has information about them all, the other is more of an information center/museum. There are several hands on displays and you can watch the staff working on injured turtles. This place does great work and is definitely worth supporting.
