Sea Turtle Rescue Organization

An essential part of endangered species conservation is simply to help people to understand the species and their importance not only to their habitat, but to our lives as well. Visitors to the facility can participate in a Turtle Talk which are given multiple times throughout the day. Additionally, we provide age-appropriate presentations for school groups and bi-lingual tours upon request. Sea Turtle, Inc. reached over 125,000 visitors in 2015!

You will also get to meet Allison, an Atlantic Green who was fit with the first successful sea turtle prosthetic device, her playmate Merry Christmas, lovable Fred the Loggerhead, hang 10 who is our little Kemp's Ridley, and our famous Gerry, our social butterfly, who has met Johnny Carson and David Letterman. In addition to our residents, you will get to meet any patients that we are currently rehabilitating. Enrichment feedings are done twice a day.

Sea Turtle Inc. is open for visitors year round, closed on Mondays for maintenance. We are open holidays except Christmas Day. We are nonprofit, 501 (C)(3) organization, operating solely on donations. We recommend a $4.00 adult, $2.00 child donation.
