Come and see the turtles and take a tour of our facility. As a part of the Topsail Turtle Project, we protect and monitor sea turtle nesting on the beaches of Topsail Island and Surf City. We offer educational tours to the public five days a week. We have lots of turtle items in the gift shop that are sure to delight you.

We are an organization dedicated to sea turtle care and rehabilitation staffed entirely by volunteers, so 100% of all donations go directly to the sea turtles that we treat.

General Admission $5; Children $3; Seniors & Military $4.
