Axel Sets Sail Key West


“ We absolutely loved the Turtle Hospital! ”

- Mom

Axel is 10-years-old from Gadsden who has been diagnosed with a type of brain tumor since 2012.  Axel loves marine animals, the ocean, and sea turtles.  These three loves really are at the heart of his wish.  Axel’s wish was to go to Key West, FL!  He chose Key West because of all the fun activities that are focused on marine animals and the ocean that you can do there.  While in Key West, Axel will be visiting the turtle hospital which focuses on rehabilitating injured sea turtles and returning them to the wild.  He can’t wait to see sea turtles up close!  He and his parents will also be going on a glass bottom boat tour where he is destined to see all different types of marine animals, a dolphin watch, and a shark adventure tour.  Axel is super excited about this trip, and can’t wait to enjoy all of his favorite things wrapped up together in one trip!

We feel so humbled that total strangers worked so hard and made Axel's wish come true! We absolutely loved the Turtle Hospital in Marathon and the entire Fury Adventure team in Key West was amazing! Axel says when he is old enough he is moving to Key West to work for Fury Adventure being the captain of a boat. Thank ya'll so much it was the best adventure ever! ”
