I wouldn't fly down from NY JUST for the turtle races.

If you are in town and around its a nice way to spend some time.

Then again, only you can decide if it'll be fun for you and your group.

I have been to them. Can't say that I consider them a trip highlight.

They're fun, funny and just a good time. They always put a smile on my face, even if I'm just walking by. The crowd reaction is the best part. Only in Key West.

We had a great time participating in the turtle races, my turtle won and I was so excited until I found out about 30 other people had his same number. You then have to go up and get a key and see if it unlocks the treasure chest, they ask your name and where you are from. If you are shy I think it would be a little intimidating but I am definately not shy and I loved it! Didnt win though!

They kinda fit right in there with the rest of Key West.. Fun, a bit odd and there's alcohol freely available. :-)

There ae three main bars on one leg of the Key West Bight overlooking the harbor; the Schooner Wharf Bar (SWB), Turtle Kraals, then the Half Shell Raw Bar. William Street runs behind them.
