There’s only one way to see the famous turtles here. You must take the 90 minute guided tour. It doesn’t sound like much, but the brilliant organisers and managers of this working hospital have squeezed every possible moment of goodness into those 90 minutes. An introductory film will prepare you for your tour, and then a highly knowledgeable tour guide will take you to meet the actual animals. It’s an incredible amount of fun – and a must do for any kids you’ve got. A lifelong awareness and concern for the environment could begin here. As for what you see on the actual tour itself… well, we’re not going to spoil that.

The Turtle Hospital, Marathon Reviews - Write a Review

  • 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!

  • Excellent family education about life and rescue of Sea Turtles. Admission fee covers treatment and care for the sea turtles that are residence and patience there. For a little more than the admission price you cam adopt a sea turtles or become a member. The gift shop has quality novelty items to purchase to remind to of the wonderful time you had there and how important it is to take care of our sea life and the ocean environment.
