We stopped in on a rainy day. Not a large facility, took us 45 minutes to walk thru, but very educational. My 9 yr. old daughter loved reading about all the rescued sea turtles and getting to see them up close.
The place has been moved to it's proper place :)
Why does this show on the map that it's by Raleigh, NC?
Loved our visit here. Our kids are 8, 6, and 6 and they were amazed by all of the sea turtles. Especially the ones over 100lbs! It took less than an hour to see everything which is perfect on a hot day. The volunteers were very knowledgeable and friendly.
You want to see rehabilitation of sea turtles, this is the place! For kids and adults...the beach is beautiful.
