  • worth a visit, especially with children to see the turtles and understand a little more about preservation.

  • The program cost $8. The introductory lecture is fine but the visit to the beach was very disappointing. The leader handed us plastic bags to pick-up garbage. She became obsessed with finding bottle c...  more »
  • OK, so these folks do Gods work in saving turtles, and the entry fee is only $5 (suggested). Having said that, the experience is a little boring. You do see 1/2 dozen or so sea turtles rehabbing from ...  more »

  • I'd give it a zero if I could. You are not allowed to feed your hungry 1,2,3,or 5 year olds, EVEN IN THE CAR. After I had already passed out lunches to starving children, we were told we had to leave the park. We were completely inside the car in the parking lot. Try taking food away from a hungry baby and see what happens. We will never go back. This is after a $40 donation. Thanks for nothing.
  • 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!
  • Gumbo Limbo is one of Boca's tucked away treasures. Take a walk through the serene boardwalks and take in the views of the ocean and intracoastal from the 3 story observation tower (soon to be dismantled and replaced). The buildings house all kinds of educational exhibits about local flora and fauna. You can even watch the rehabilitation of baby loggerheads being prepared for release. Awesome place to spend a few hours taking in the beauty of South Florida. Excellent for families and I could not recommend stopping by enough.
  • Awesome place to go spend a couple hours to a day always loads of fun walking around and enjoying the nature
