What is there to do?

Georgia Sea Turtle Center is an adorable day out for the family where you can visit an actual sea turtle hospital and see all of the recovering patients!

This animal-tastic experience in Georgia offers an interactive exhibit gallery, as well as the rehabilitation paviloin, where there are often many patients there waiting for their visitors! (That's you!)

The Georgia Sea Turtle Center is a great way for kids to not only see how the sea turtles are recovering, but also a great way to learn all about the species, as well as their habits and habitats.

Did you know that the diamondback terrapin lives in the marsh, and is in fact the ONLY known turtle that spends most of it's life there? See, you are learning already, and they are the kind of fun facts that you will leave the Georgia Sea Turtle Center with!

The center also has daily programs that you can participate in, giving you a deeper insight into these cute creatures. You can witness the little patients being fed, and you can actually go and meet them! There are also behind the scenes tours on certain days with limited availability, so get in quick for those!

Don't miss the fun events too that are held across the year, including evening turtle walks and rides over summer. How fun!

Enjoy a beautiful animal experience with some beautiful animals on your next peachy family day out  - it is Georgia after all!
