Fodor's Review

More than 100 injured sea turtles check in here every year. The 90-minute guided tours take you into recovery and surgical areas at the world's only state-certified veterinary hospital for sea turtles. In the "hospital bed" tanks, you can see recovering patients and others that are permanent residents due to their injuries. After the tour, you can feed some of the "residents." Call ahead—space is limted and tours are sometimes canceled due to medical emergencies. The turtle ambulance out front makes for a memorable souvenir photo.
