Take a Tour of Rescue Turtles to Support Florida Keys Turtle Hospital

Visit the Florida Keys and do a tour at the Turtle Hospital. 100 percent of the admission goes back to taking care of the local turtles.

The Hospital is located directly next door to the Courtyard by Marriott Marathon, just another reason why we loved staying there.

The tour began just as the rain started to come down. They kept the tour running, handed out ponchos, and gave us food to feed them. They told us if we want to leave at anytime they can refund us, but we all decided to stay.

Many turtles are hit by boat propellers and need extensive surgery. Some of these turtles will never leave since their injuries are too extreme.

The Turtle Hospital is a little slice of paradise that saves over 100 turtles a year!

  1. This is so nice. I love turtles and I would absolutely love to take my niece there so she can learn about science and beign a good person. This is the kind of tourism I can get behind.

  2. I had two turtles when I was a kid and I loved the so much, they were always with me! We have to protect them and if possible adopt the ones who need. – Paolo

  3. I love that there is a hospital to help these sweet creatures! I had no idea something like this even existed, but I know it’s something Ryan and I would both enjoy doing – we always have the best times at zoos and aquariums!

  4. Soon as I learned that turtles were endangered, I never had turtle soup ever again. They are so cute and should be taken good care of.

  5. I am in love with this post! I’m so happy to hear that there is a hospital dedicated for them! Plus you can visit the Turtle Patients, too! So cool!

  6. This would be so much fun to visit, and I love that all proceeds go to further their cause. I can only imagine how many turtles need their care with all the boating activity down there. They wouldn’t face these injuries without humans, so it’s only right that we step up and do everything that we an to take care of them!

  7. I always participate on rescue turtles here in our place. It is just pure love to give back.

  8. Wow ! Turtles are so cute. I never thought that there will be a dedicated hospital for them. The hospital deserves to have all kind of support. Great post and thanks for sharing!
