5 star review  Great place for the kiddos! Ours were free (under the age limit) and our tickets weren't expensive. Half the hospital was empty which is great for the sea turtles but the kiddos were upset they didn't see more turtles. The gift shop had a line because of the virus occupancy limits but once inside it was nice to freely move around. The staff were all friendly and informative.

    5 star review  Non profit organization and a great little spot to stop while in SPI. Was very pleased with their attention to COVID precautions. Everyone was wearing masks and hand sanitizer was available in lots of places. Good informational presentation that’s only about 15 minutes. Staff are extremely friendly and available for questions. Ginormous turtles were super cool to see- one was 220lbs! Also check out the cool evolution of prosthetics they made for one of their residents. We plan to try out their adoption program. Thanks for a great educational and fun experience.

My daughters and I visited the sea turtle experience in South Padre and really enjoyed it. It is not expensive at all, very affordable and a good way to teach them about our ocean friends.

Take an hour or so and check out The sea turtles. Fun and educational for kids and adults . These folks are doing a great job saving turtles and educating people about these wonderful sea creatures.
