Whether this place goes by it's old name (Fins 'n Flippers) or their new name (Maya Key), it is a really wonderful place. First, as far as the animals, they appear to be well cared for and seem to have good habitats. We walked around the entire place and were very happy with what we saw. The snorkeling was actually...

We arrived on Maya Key on June 18 to a downpour of rain, which only added to it's charm. This place is amazing...so much to do. My daughter and I signed up for the sea lion encounter and had a blast with Ting...what a big sweetheart :) After that we decided to snorkel and Omar, gladly took us out. The... More

This is called Fins 'n Flippers but I know it as Maya Key Roatan. Our group of five visited here while cruising on the Carnival Magic in May of 2014. We booked this excursion through the cruise ship. Once off of the cruise ship we got on another boat and were taken to a private island. We went here mainly... More

We went to Maya Key thru a Carnival Cruise excursion in mid-January, mostly because we had heard that the snorkeling here was very good. We were not disappointed! When you arrive on the island (about a 10 minute boat ride from the Carnival port) you walk up the path to the main building where you are given a quick briefing... More

We had an excellent day visiting the animals, enjoying the beach and the wonderful lunch! The sea bass and rice & beans were wonderful.

I had a lot of fun on Maya Key (formally fins and flippers) The animal sanctuary was amazing, cool monkeys and different animals to see. You can hold a parrot and an alligator, as well as a baby monkey. The snorkeling is great! Very clear and lots of neat fish to see. The guide will help you along the way... More

As other reviews have mentioned, this a private island with lots of benefits. They have the best snorkeling area my husband has ever seen. And he could go out as often as he wanted during our time on the island. We was on a cruise and booked with the cruise line. This was the best excursion out the four we... More

This is the second time we've taken a shore excursion through Carnival to Maya Key. We loved it both times. The snorkeling is fantastic, the overall ambiance is relaxing and peaceful, the location is great, and we love the fact they are so helpful to the animals they rescue. We will definitely make a donation to the cause, and will... More
