The Turtle Hospital, Marathon Reviews

  • Excellent experience! We have been to many zoos, aquariums, etc., but this was - by far - the best opportunity to learn about sea turtles and see them up-close. The guided tour begins with a hospital staff member explaining the various types of sea turtles and interesting information about them. After viewing the operating/emergency rooms, you are able to see the sea turtles in the larger hurricane tanks and the smaller individual tanks. There is an opportunity to feed the sea turtles as well. There is a small gift shop. Be advised: a reservation is highly recommended!

  • Fun and educational must-see of the Florida keys! The tour guide was very passionate and knowledgeable about each turtle and information about turtles in general. We were able to see a turtle during surgery through a glass window. Very cool! We were also able to feed the turtles in the main pool which was fun for young and old. Great souvenir shop as well!

  • Awesome group of people helping sea turtles. Plenty of parking and easy to find. The entrance fee to tour the facility was a bit steep but it is for a good cause. Based on the display I am surprised we even have any sea turtles left. Go see this and the bird hospital. You won't regret it.

  • Definitely a "Can't Miss" attraction in Marathon! So many beautiful sea turtles, and iguanas, too. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Only suggestion would be changing the fit of the ladies tank tops. I bought one as a souvenir but I never wear it because it's so uncomfortable.

  • This turtle hospital and its staff are heaven sent!! WOW, What an experience!! Everyone in the Florida keys area, and visitors to the area, needs to visit this sanctuary and hospital. The tour cost is well worth it. The wonderful work that this facility does to help seriously injured sea turtles and also educate the public about the harm that we humans are doing to the turtles' home - the ocean- is fascinating and moving. Our host for the tour was Meghan and she was thoroughly well versed about all of the sea turtles in the facility. The temporary resident sea turtles are the ones that really moved my heart, because I hope they will recover and return to the ocean. Great facility, Great information, i would go there over and over again!!! Thanks!!!
