Turtles found injured or sick in the wild are brought here to receive medical attention. They are kept in open-top holding tanks that have viewing windows on the sides while they are treated for injuries and infections. When the turtles have returned to full health they are released back into the wild. This facility offers an opportunity for the public to observe turtles of many species close up and to learn more about them. Staff are knowledgeable, friendly and eager to pass on information about these fascinating creatures. There is an adjoined education center and giftshop. The centre also is involved in conservation, ensuring the security of spawning turtles and their eggs at nearby Juno Beach and in operating the Juno Beach Pier. The Loggerhead Marinelife Center is agreat place to observe and learn more about wild turtles. I highly recommend a visit. Admission is by donation.

Makes for a great stop for families during a vacation and locals a like! Warm friendly people will greet you upon entry, theres no cost, donations welcomed at your discretion of which directly contribute to the cause. Kids are full of excitement each time Ive visited! Knowledgeable staff eagerly share their stories about the history of the facility, facts about sea turtles, and about the aid they offer to the sea turtle population. Great experience, and great cause! I highly recommend setting some time aside for this experience! PS. check out their website for further details AND if your available time matches up with a release of one of the patients, DONT miss it, jot it into your calender now!
This center is great to visit for any age! You are immediately greeted by one of many welcoming and knowledgeable volunteers who tells you a little about the facility and what they do. They ask for a $5 dontation which, in my opinon, isnt enought for all they do to help the turtles. They have a fun interactive center inside as well as a reasonably priced gift shop. Out back they have 10+ tubs/tanks with turtles who are all being rehabilitated and will be returned to the wild when they are healthy. They also have a hospital for the turtles that you can view into from windows. Have questions about anything at the facility or turtles? They can answer it! This place is amazing !
This was by far one of the best sea turtle establishments weve ever visited. There were so many volunteers and staff available to answer questions and the facility itself is large enough to accommodate a variety of turtles and large crowds. Admission is a donation of $5 per person however you leave thinking about how if it had cost $10-$25 per person it still wouldve been worth it. The staff and facility here are doing great things and theyre so willing to educate children. Definitely worth the visit and will do so again.
Because of these amazing people the two half dead newly hatched baby sea turtles survived…i cant thank them enough….the one thing that disgusts me is learning how many fisherman are NOT responsible and actual cut the lines instead of helping the turtles that end up on the end of their hooks. You think people who love the sea would care about what is in it! People need to evolve if our species is to have continuation. Thanks Loggerhead Marinelife for doing your part in Florida!
This is a nice little "nature" center, though, not very expansive. Inside, there are a few marine tanks showcasing indigenous and invasive species, turtle facts and info-graphics, and a gift shop. Out back, they have over a dozen turtles that are being rehabilitated, as well as a small play area and more educational signage. Here, you can also look into the hospital area and watch any exams that may be going on or talk with one of many knowledgeable volunteers.
Beautiful, free place to visit and learn about sea turtles, the ocean and all living species in the ocean. The volunteers working when I was there were friendly and knowledge. I was welcomed enthusiastically! Easy to find right off A1A and Donald Toss in Juno Beach, FL. The gift shop has some really cool items and nothing is too pricey. Nice nature trail beside it. But go early when they open because the steaming hot Florida sun can be brutal.
No matter how many times we visit LMC, we always enjoy ourselves. There are always new turtles to see and we love how each has their story on plaques near their tanks. The volunteers/staff are always very friendly and welcoming, and the gift shop is any turtle-lovers DREAM! Please remember to make a donation when you visit. Entrance is free but these people couldnt do the great work they do without the financial support of visitors.
I love Loggerhead Marinelife Center! Its the perfect place to bring children or anyone from out of town for a free experience that gets visitors up-close to threatened and endangered marinelife. They offer plenty of opportunities to become involved such as educational programs, monthly beach cleanups, Turtle Walks during the summer, and fundraising events. Its an excellent cultural center and youll walk away learning something new.
Wonderful, heartwarming place. You get to see the turtles in their recuperation tanks while we learn about the effects of human trash in their environment. Its a great educational, free experience. Make sure to stop at the gift shop and "adopt/sponsor" one of the turtles. Sign up for their emails. When the turtles are well enough, they are returned to the ocean and that is quite the experience. Its a must in anyones bucket list.
Great little tour and briefing about sea turtles. Turtle rescue and hospital. Make night time reservation to hopefully witness a turtle coming ashore, digging a whole and dropping nearly 100 eggs which will hatch and with much luck return to the same spot to drop eggs and future hatchlings. Awesome experience. Extra bonus for daytime visit. Right across the street from the ocean for a great water swim or snooze on the beach!
Great place to take the family! Although it seems a little small, its amazing what this place does. They rehabilitate sea turtles and release them to hatch babies on the shore which is the only place in the world besides somewhere in Jordan (and who knows what they do for the turtles). The gift shop also has some wonderful gifts. I would definitely recommend!
A great service to the community, caring for and returning turtles to the sea. On top of that they are extremely visitor friendly, offering both public and private tours. Visiting here was the highlight of a recent trip to Florida for my kids. I cant recommend it strongly enough. Ive also heard great things about their camp experience.
It is a great place to visit and what they are doing there is really wonderful.i support there effort to save these turtles! However the stuff they sell in the gift shop is buyer beware. We purchased jewelry and some other merchandise and we didnt even get home before it broke. For the price they charge you would expect better!!!!
Wonderful quick kids stop. Mixed feelings about seeing do many hurt turtles (lots to see; sad there is a constant intake from boats and nuke power plant). Friendly staff and volunteers. Snack bar, gift shop, small displays inside. Kids have extra energy? Check out the playground in the park behind it too.
I always visited Loggerhead ever since i was little. Im 25 now. Whenever i have family visiting from out of town taking them here is a MUST! I use to bring my young neice here every other week. Great aquariums, highly educational, and saying hello to our favorite turtles outside is the best.
