This place is a great stop if you’re traveling from Key West back to Miami or Fort Lauderdale. It is about an hour and 45 minutes from Key West if you are looking for a swim with the dolphins program in the Florida Keys.The park has 17 acres and is full of interesting animals– sea lions, dolphins, fish, turtles, and crocodiles just to name a few. This facility cares for animals who are rescued and you can witness that the staff cares about all the animals that are here. Even if you don’t go into the water with dolphins, you’re able to get pretty close to the animals in the park. The dolphins come right up to the boat; the turtles are swimming within reach even though you can’t touch them; and there is a cool pond where you can wade in as huge fish swim around you.
