The Turtle Hospital, Marathon

(3,200+ reviews on the web)
Wildlife Area Nature / Park
Nestled in the core of the Florida Keys, The Turtle Hospital rescues, rehabilitates, and protects injured and sick sea turtles. Since 1986 the center has worked to raise awareness of the dangers sea turtles face. The staff conducts research on turtle health and returns wounded turtles that are healed to their natural habitat. Some turtles cannot live in the wild due to surgeries or permanent disabilities, so the hospital cares for its permanent residents. To take a tour and see the turtles, be sure to call well in advance; slots are limited and fill up quickly. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Marathon holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the The Turtle Hospital and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
