  • Love this place. Great for kids and nature lovers alike. Currently they are repairing the boardwalk so some of the park maybe closed. The turtle walks on the beach and hatchling releases are great. You need to buy tickets in advance. The turtle hospital and the large aquatic tanks that host rays and fish present a great learning experience. The guides are knowledgeable. Once they repair the tower and the boardwalk, it will be 5 star again.
  • What an outstanding place. The staff is very knowledgeable and informative. The Night Turtle Walk on the beach to see sea turtles nest their eggs was a bucket list item that you need to check off!!! Extremely affordable, and well worth the time to check it out! It is also very clean and good for all ages. Wear comfy shoes as there is much walking to go see all they have to offer!
  • Great location where scientists are hard at work preserving sea turtles and other endangered wildlife. It was completely free and was fun to watch all the animals swimming happily. Nice free place to go for the family - the kids would love it.
  • A must when going to Broward County. It is free but a 5$ donation is recommended. Make sure to take a walk in the canopy, there's an amazing view tower. You can also have fun time observing beautiful creatures in their butterfly garden. I've been 3 times and I enjoyed every one of them. Parking tip : if there isnt any place left, you can park in the Red Reef Prking next to the Center (1.25$/hour). Unless there's the friendly staff member who will help you park in the grass :)
  • There ia so much more going on here than just a nature center walk through. The work done here with sea turtles is amazing and so educational. Definitely worth stopping in for a few hours.
