Loggerhead Marinelife Center is an amazing place to visit with children. It is a sea turtle hospital for injured and rehabilitating loggerhead sea turtles, green sea turtles, leatherback sea turtles, Kemp’s ridley sea turtles, and hawksbill sea turtles. Although it is self-guided, there are plenty of docents and volunteers available to answer your questions. The new facility is comfortable with ample parking and turtle viewing is easy for even the youngest child.
Private tours are available Tuesday-Saturday by calling (561)627-8280. The tour is one hour in length and is $5 per adult and $3 per child. Tours can be tailored to your needs with prior notification. Some tour guides will take groups to the beach to discuss beach ecology, pollution, sea turtle nesting biology and ocean ecology. If this interests you, please be sure to mention it when making your reservation.
A variety of educational programs are available including Turtle Tots, their program for 3-5 year olds. Contact 561.627.8280 x105 for more information.
