Now, you can watch a webcam focused on one of these nests, which is due to hatch any minute. Head to www.fla-keys.com/turtlecam, and even at night you'll be able to spy on the nest via infrared camera. Once these turtles have hatched, the camera will be relocated to another nearby nest with eggs projected to hatch around September 9th.
We're guessing the residents of Big Pine Key love these live webcams since Deer Run Bed and Breakfast has their own live beach webcam too. Deer Run is one of the few lodges in Big Pine Key and has only four rooms with either ocean or garden views. But just because its small, doesn't mean it's lacking modern conveniences. All rooms feature free Wi-Fi and satellite Television.
Deer Run is also serious about being eco-friendly and was designated a State of Florida certified green lodge back in 2007. Their efforts have included installing a chemical-free salt water system in the pool and collecting rain water in barrels for irrigation. They also have a mandatory towel and linen reuse program in place so if you like a fresh towel every morning, you may want to bring a couple of your own. Their garden view room starts at $225a small price to pay if you really love turtles.
