In light of growing concerns around COVID-19 (Coronavirus), recommendations from Georgia state health and government agencies, and following cancellation decisions made by similar organizations within our local communities, the Georgia Sea Turtle Center has opted to cancel Behind the Scenes tours for the immediate future.

There are no restrictions or advisories for travel or vacationing to the area or within the state of Georgia at this time, so the Georgia Sea Turtle Center will remain open providing regular programming for general admission guests.
For those wanting to stay updated on the current state of travel to the area and the increased protocols being taken on Jekyll Island, please visit:

The Georgia Sea Turtle Center is a working rehabilitation hospital for sick and injured animals. Tour subject to cancellation without advanced notice due to emergencies.
