This is a great seaturtle conservation organization. They have a turtle hospital and small education center. The most notable thing with this organization is the during seaturtle nesting season (May - August), they take you on guided walk to watch the turtles up close.

We lucked into this place. It was a great way to spend an hour and view the turtles native to the region. This is a non-profit organization that provides medical rehabilitation to injured turtles then releases them back to the ocean. We saw loggerhead, green and hawksbill turtles. The staff are friendly and knowledgable. It was a very worthwhile experience.

This was an excellent adventure! They arrange evening turtle walks to see the turtles lay their eggs and morning hatchling walks to see the baby turtles run for the ocean. These walks book out way way in advance so you MUST plan ahead. Very affordable, very educational and inspiring for both young and old. Getting to see the young turtles... More

I remember when this first began. There were a few tanks of wounded turtles. Now, it's a total experience that will touch and warm your heart. MANY tanks are filled with turtles who were suffering from illnesses or hurt by boat propellers, fish hooks or other debris left in the ocean. They receive loving care, including even surgery in their... More

The Loggerhead Center is actually a hospital for sea turtles. We had the chance to see some of the turtles there that had been brought in and were injured. It's a very heart warming experience to see some of these beautify creatures, many of which are on the endangered list. It's a great place to add to the must see... More

I can't believe this is free! Very educational and interesting for all ages. They have many rescued turtles in tanks and also a hospital where you can see the turtles being worked on. It took us maybe 45 minutes to see all of the turtles. We would come here again. It's also only a 5 minute drive to Juno beach... More

Each turtle has a place card, telling the turtle's story. Older kids will take the time to read the stories but younger kids will get bored. It will take about an hour to see everything and the gift shop is nice. It is close to the beach so we usually start with the Marinelife center then some time at the... More

My friends live nearby and suggested this while I was visiting! I was so impressed. The interior area was very well done with a turtle skeleton and lots of interactive displays and information both about sea turtles locally and in general. The gift shop was well stocked and reasonably priced. They had really nice educational and decorative merchandise. The outside... More

Each turtle has an outdoor tank, with their story posted to the side so that you can read about how they arrived at the Center and what their progress is. There is a small playground for kids, a vet office, gift shop and indoor educational center. They organize beach clean-ups and post when turtles are hatching that you can sign-up... More
