  • What a wonderful facility that assists injured and ill turtles. Cole, a science educator at the center, provided detailed information about the turtles and shared ways that we can help sea turtles. She explained everything clearly. Great place to take kids— young and old!
  • Fantastic! Friendly and knowledgeable staff. My wife and I had fun exploring -- no kids necessary :) Try the boardwalk. It's quite lengthy and the arboreal aromas are awesome!
  • Such a great find!!! The bathrooms are very clean. The nature center is well kept. Very kid friendly. The butterfly garden is amazing!!! My family and I enjoyed the turtles,the aquarium, and the red snack. They have a lovely and friendly staff. Well kept gift shop. Loved it!!!
  • I love Gumbo Limbo! We've been coming here since I was a child, and now my child gets to experience it for himself. ❤ Very fun, family-friendly, and environmentally educational. Thanks Gumbo Limbo! 👍
