  • Very nice location which allows the public to get close to these massive sea turtles. Several staff we gave encountered are knowledgeable and always friendly. This is a great spot to take young kids, admission is free but they do take donations. The gift shop is pretty good for the size of operation. We frequentl here at least twice a year. We just did a fundraiser run/walk this year for Gumbo Limbo which was a ton of fun!
  • I've been taking my daughter to Gumbo Limbo since she was 5 months old and she still loves it at 2 years old! We love to see the fish and sea turtles and the suggested donation seems pretty reasonable ($5.00 per person) for the amount of work that they do. Their personnel is extremely friendly and knowledgeable. We love coming here!
  • Had a lot of fun. Great place for kids, families, adults, and friends ... light hiking and great exhibits. Was under a bit of construction on our visit so half was closed and some was still being built. But it's being constructed newer and safer, so always a plus. Great place to see rescued turtles and a big aquariums of fish. Oh and don't forget to get your pokemon go on!
  • Beautiful Nature center with lots to see and do. The aquariums are a personal favorite. The board walk is being reconstructed and is now open again which was nice. There was much to learn while there with guides posted at each area indicating what to look for. Guided tour was very nice, but in recent years we have just visited and done a self guided tour.
  • The center is free but there is a suggested $5 donation and the volunteers are both knowledgeable and helpful. I went with my 8 year old cousin and she really enjoyed it. There's plenty of places to relax and sit and even a nice little Beach area (signs say don't go in the water) near the butterfly garden.
