The sea turtle, one of the rarer residents of the Florida Keys, isn’t easy to see in the wild. But you can get within arm’s reach of several varieties that frequent the Florida Keys and even toss them some food at the non-profit Turtle Hospital in Marathon.
Robbie’s Marina is a don’t-miss stop as you drive through the Florida Keys. Dozens of tarpon, some more than 6 feet long, gather at the dock and lunge for fish from visitors. The restaurant there, the Hungry Tarpon, is highly recommended , too.
