Karen Beasley Sea Turtle & Rehabilitation Center Tours

General admission: $5 (13 & up); Seniors and Military: $4; Children $3 (12 & under). We are located at 302 Tortuga Lane, (Mainland) Surf City. Take the turn from Rts. 50/210 onto Charlie Medlin Drive (Shipwreck Point Mini Golf is your landmark for this road.) Follow the road onto the gravel section and through the round-about. We are the only building on Tortuga.

You can’t use Google Maps to find our new facility (we moved from Topsail Beach almost a year ago.) The road (Tortuga Lane) is too new and doesn’t show up on GPS. And a word of advice: if you park on the side of the road beware of the drop-off into the ditches, and that sand is softer than it looks!
