Understand the kick we are all getting out of this and showing the pics around. But its not the right thing to do for intelligent creatures like dolphins. I went their with my kids, explained them the situation and gave them a choice. We decided as a family not to go in. Very proud of my kids.

The dolphin experience was awesome!!! The trainers were great. The facility was nice and treated animals very well. Very informative. Snorkeling with the dolphins was an experience I will never forget!!! Super cool!!! Very special place. But they know it- after paying $110 a person for a one hour experience they then charge $85 for the photos they take!!!!! I... More

While visiting Roatan in March, my husband and I decided to attend the Dolphin Encounter at the Marine Institute at Anthony's Key Resort. I have been wanting to do a dolphin encounter for a long time but I was holding out to find a situation where I could meet the Dolphins in a natural environment. After reading the reviews I... More

My husband has always wanted to swim with Dolphins. We took the opportunity while in Roatan to visit Anthony's Key Resort and let him experience swimming with Dolphins. Let me start by saying that Anthony's Key Resort was very accommodating to us and the staff was very pleasant. The resort itself is very nice and a place we would consider... More

my husband and I only watched our son and granddaughter do the dolphin action swim. (I swam in a dolphin show in the Bahamas years ago, so I didn't feel the need!). They REALLY enjoyed it. They interacted a lot with the dolphins, in the water, getting them to splash them, and do tricks for them. But the real treats... More

This was our second cruise stop. It's a bus ride from port to Anthony's Key Resort. You can change your clothes there or wear suit under your clothes & bring a towel to dry off. They do have lockers to put your things in. You can bring your camera (mine was waterproof) & cell phone. You are in only waist... More

Amazing, just amazing! If you are at Roatan, this is a absolute must-try! They know the prizes, but you still have to try a dolphin encounter. Or even maybe swim with the dolphins.

This shore excursion was the highlight of a cruise we took this past month. We signed up for this excursion so my husband could enjoy the experience since he does not swim. Most of these encounters are "Swimming" with the dolphins, this is a "Dolphin Encounter". I have always wanted to do a dolphin encounter, but was unwilling to support... More
