  • The Gumbo Limbo Nature Center is a fun place to take the family. This place should get an extra star for the good they do in saving Sea Turtles. Highly educational in the world of the ocean especially with Sea Turtle preservation, this place is one not to miss. I enjoyed the feeding of the fish and turtles in the two large deep aquariums and the two large shallow tanks. The facilities are very nice and the nature trail is something to enjoy. I like the education on Turtle lighting and found out that there are 7 types of Sea Turtles and the Florida waters are home to 6 of them. Bet you didn’t know that. If so, you listened better than me in oceanography class. The gift shop is small, but has all the typical Florida stuff and the full size turtle statues out front are fun for a photo opportunity and the kids love to play on them. I will be back...
  • Great place to go and spend a few hours. Wonderful exhibits and amazing cause saving Turtles. Entrance is donation (please give something) and parking is free. Been there 2 times in 2 months and great to see new patients arriving and released.
  • This is one of my favorite places. I always visit at least once when visiting Boca Raton. They do amazing work and rehabilitate over 100 turtles per year. Great place to take kids. Boardwalk through the jungle is beautiful and peaceful. Highly recommended.
  • The Gumbo Limbo Nature Center is a fabulous place to visit. It is both fun and educational. The place has so much to offer for people of all ages. I love coming to the Gumbo Limbo Nature Center because there is always something to new to learn and discover. If you are looking for a great place to take visitors or just a family outing, The Gumbo Limbo Nature Center will definitely fit the bill.
  • My kids (and myself) love this place. They do great work for the sea life and the environment. Including rehabilitating sea turtles that were injured or sick. Great place to explore the outdoors and other ecosystems for fish, turtles, and other sea life among other things. There are nature trails, butterfly garden, etc, etc. It just so happened that they released one today back into the ocean after 7 mos of rehabilitation. It was very special.
