Family Fun on the Florida Keys with Dolphins and Turtles
At Marathon, visitors can swim year round with gentle, ever curious dolphins at two Marathon area facilities while learning about their behaviour and how to interact with them.
Based at Hawks Cay Resort (one of Bon Voyage's featured hotels) on Duck Key, Dolphin Connections offers super contact with dolphins in programs such as Dolphin Discovery and Dockside Dolphins, an adventure for family groups with children aged 5 and older.
Dolphin Research Centre on Grassy Key is a teaching and research facility. Fun-filled interactive programmes include Dolphin Encounter, Meet the Dolphin, Trainer for the Day, Dolphin Dip and Paint with a Dolphin.
Turtle fans are fascinated by the Marathon's Turtle Hospital, the only facility of its kind in the world. Here caring staff treat ill and injured sea turtles and return them to the wild. Enjoy an educational tour here where you'll get the chance to view loggerheads, green, hawksbill and Kemp's tidley turtles.
