Gumbo Limbo Nature Center in Boca Raton is open and back in full swing, but here is a tip for avoiding the crowds! Join Gumbo Limbo for an after-hours tour through Gumbo Limbo’s Sea Turtle Rehabilitation Facility and outdoor aquariums, open-air butterfly garden, Ashley Nature Trail, ending with breathtaking sunset views of the Intracoastal Waterway from the beach by our Seminole Chiki.
At Gumbo Limbo they love sea turtles and other animals just as much. The Gumbo Limbo education team has created fun and educational activities for your kids and the family to do together in your own backyard and home. Visit the virtual page for more at-home fun!
Naturalist guides will lead the way on an hour and a half tour taking adventurists through the butterfly garden, into the shaded trail loop with a stop at the authentic Seminole hut. The hut offers incredible views of the water. Visit the Sea Turtle Rehabilitation Facility and get a close-up view of fish and stingrays in their four large outdoor marine exhibits.
