  • Our 5 1/2 and 8 1/2 year old enjoy this nature center annually. We walk the nature trails with the field guides so it feels like a scavenger hunt. We did one Hammock plant trail and then the butterfly...  more »
  • A great recommendation and we were lucky enough to follow up on it. This place is free and you can't beat it. I do recommend that you make a donation because the stuff that these guys do is legendary....  more »

  • This is a research and rehab so if I could rate it 10 stars I would just because of the very important work they do. I'm so glad I stumbled across Gumbo Limbo, very nice setup with lots to keep your little one occupied for at least half a day (more or less depending if you move fast and rush around or move about lazily. The staff are always so pleasant and helpful which is so refreshing. Definitely a high recommend for me
  • Definitely worth the 25 mile drive each way to visit. So much for adults and children to learn and to be able to see wildlife such as the sea turtle close up. The work they do is amazing in rescuing these ocean animals. And there is no actual entrance fee although a donation of $5 a person is recommended and more than warranted.
  • This is one of our favorite places in South Florida! My daughters love coming here to watch the wide variety of fish swimming in the outdoor aquariums, then walk in the Butterfly Garden or try to spot the blue crabs on the Boardwalk Trail. It's the perfect place for a picnic or a relaxing family day outdoors!
  • Thank you to the people of gumbo limbo for all they are doing to preserve the turtles of the ocean. Beautiful facility and wonderful volunteers. Great way to spend half a day.
  • The people are so nice and there is so many aquariums full of fish, eels, and even lobster. They have live feedings and is a realy good place for kids and adults. Depending on when you go they may have baby sea turtles too.
