Learn About Marine Life in the Florida Keys
The Florida Keys make up the most famous island chain in the U.S., and they're filled with aquatic opportunities like swimming, boating, and snorkeling. Because of the focus on marine life in the Florida Keys, the area is home to attractions that educate people about the inhabitants of the sea in fun and entertaining ways. When you stay at Pelican RV Resort & Marina, be sure and schedule a visit to check out these unique facilities catering to marine life.

Dolphin Research Center

Just a five-minute walk down the street from Pelican RV Resort, the Dolphin Research Center offers a wonderful and exciting experience for anyone seeking close encounters with these charming creatures.

Your adventure could include holding on to the dorsal fin of a dolphin while it takes you for a ride around the lagoon. You can also join a researcher or trainer for the day, studying and learning more about these incredible animals. The dolphins are trained to rest their jaw on your palm, giving you the opportunity to pet them. No matter how you spend the day, you'll leave with a smile on your face and a warm feeling in your heart.

The Turtle Hospital

Situated in Marathon, Florida, The Turtle Hospital is an active and working veterinary hospital that specializes in treating and rehabilitating injured and sick sea turtles. The facility first opened in 1986 and in the years since it has successfully treated over 1,500 sea turtles before returning them to their natural environment.

Part of The Turtle Hospital's goal is to educate the public on issues facing the world's sea turtles. The best way to learn is to take a captivating tour of The Turtle Hospital to see how these sea animals are rescued and rehabilitated. During this experience, you'll have the chance to see the inner workings of the hospital and feed the permanent residents. Be sure to call ahead and make a reservation, as there's limited space available for tours.
