The Turtle Hospital, Marathon Reviews

  • Really cool place. They are a non profit that rescues, rehabilitates, and releases sea turtles. To actually see the turtles, you need to go on a tour (with a fee-slightly high, but well worth it since it goes towards the caring for the turtles). It includes an informational session to learn about the turtles in the area and the issues they face, with some interactive things they pass around. Then you can see all of the turtles there for rehabilitation and learn about why they are there. At the end you can feed the turtles 'turtle chow.' Highly recommend!! They accept walk-ins for tours, but you're safer making a reservation.

  • I love the turtle hospital tour. This is a great place. Very informative. Love getting up close look at the sea turtles that are being rehabilitated. Very well run. It's good to have reservations ahead of time.

  • This place is very educational and entertaining. I loved seeing the live turtles and learning about what puts them in danger. Yes, the price is a little steep but as a 501c I have no problem paying it to help fund their awesome programs. You need a reservation or you might not get on a tour. Luckily we came at a slow time and hopped on a tour the next hour.

  • Our visit pre-dated the hurricane so not sure if anything changed. Hint 1 : Free parking is a somewhat limited, get there a little early. Hint 2 : If you want photos of the turtles swimming, hang back from the group a little and when they hand out food, keep yours. When the turtles have eaten everyone else's, pick a good spot and throw some out leading them to your lens. :) Hint 3 : Some of this is outside, so if you burn easy, put some sunscreen on. Please give my review a thumbs up if the hints or review have been helpful!! Review: It is an absolute must visit if you have any interest in turtles. Great operation that is helping lots of turtles and love educating people about them. The tour was really nice, you got to see plenty of turtles of all sizes reasonably close. Photos were easy to get as well. Our guide was super, answered all my grandson's seemingly endless questions. We had a great time, we still talk about our visit and we look forward to going back.

  • Our daughter Parker (5 yrs old) began her love affair with sea turtles on her first trip to the turtle hospital when she was 4 yrs old. We vacation in Marathon annually and the Turtle Hospital is always at the top of her list. This year we went 3 times! The staff are incredibly informative, kind, and generous with their time. We’ve listened to tours from Megan, Kate and Marian. You might think that once you’ve done the tour once you’ve heard it all, but each time we do the tour we learn something new! Thank you to all of you for your time, and keep up the great work! We can’t wait to return next year!
