Loggerhead Marinelife Center

Notice: Our Outdoor Sea Turtle Hospital will be closed to guests Monday – Friday from 10:45am – 11:15am and 12:15pm – 12:45pm until August 9th to accommodate visiting field trips. Thank you for your understanding and patience.

Loggerhead Marinelife Center is one of Florida’s most visited nonprofit scientific destinations focused on ocean and sea turtle conservation.

Please see important information regarding parking during construction>

Construction Notice: As the construction of our expanded campus progresses, we will have ongoing construction updates. We’ve begun renovating our Outdoor Sea Turtle Hospital, this space will be closed to the public while under construction. During the renovation, guests will be able to visit our sea turtle patients in a temporary location on our campus. At peak visiting times, we may need to limit guest flow through the Outdoor Hospital resulting in small wait times.

We have some limited spaces open for tomorrow evening's (July 29) Turtle Walk program. Register here >
