What a great way to spend an afternoon in Roatan. We made arrangements for this adventure thru Avi, the activity director here at Infinity Bay. He said it was one of the must do activities. He was right. First, if you are expecting a big budget high production experience, this is not the case. Anthony's Key is one of the oldest resorts on the Island and provides a great experience. The are two levels to experience -first is the dolphin experience and the next level is snorkeling with he dolphins. You must do the experience before the snorkel, but you can't snorkel without the experience. During the experience a trainer spends time explaining all about the dolphins, with one right with you, touching the dolphin, and posing with It. You'll have your picture taken with the dolphin so they can offer you pic's for purchase later, not cheap but really fun to have as a momento.
This part lasts about 25 minutes, then the snorkel starts if you paid the extra for that. In our opinion it's worth it. You have
the opportunity to swim freely with the dolphins for about 30 minutes. They'll swim with you, by you, around you, and under you. The water is not as clear in the cove but really fun. There is a trainer available to answer questions but is not directing the interaction. The dolphins swim freely and interact as they want. The day we went they were very interactive and fun.
There aren't but a couple of places in the world this type of activity is available so it truly unique. This isn't cheap but if you want to interact - yes even touch / stroke a / several dolphins its worth the price.
