  • Beautiful miles of white sand beach and a learning opportunity for those who love Sea Turtles and care about their preservation. Route A1A runs all along the ocean with many places to access the beach...  more »

  • Fantastic. One program was a turtle walk. They take a small group to watch loggerhead sea turtles nest. Very amazing and you keep your distance to see all the turtles come out of the sea, nest and head home. We studied one , but saw a few others come up. Very cool.
  • Great little place to stop with about 15 minutes of exhibits for kids and very helpful staff for understanding the wildlife viewing opportunities in the area. She pointed out some mating season turtles for me to see in broad daylight.
  • Just turned in the red mangroves I was growing for the staff to plant on earth day. It's an amazing place to learn. Worth the trip.
  • Very interesting. Great for kids. Good learning experience
  • Great educational center and a nice 1mile hiking trail.
