If you have ever dreamt of meeting a dolphin face-to-face, you won't want to miss this tour.
Departing from the pier, you will travel approximately 30 minutes to Anthony's Key Resort and Roatan's Institute for Marine Sciences. Upon arrival at the facility, it's a short boat ride over to Bailey's Key - home to the Institute's resident bottlenose dolphins. After a briefing by the staff, your experience of a lifetime will begin as you are led into the waist-deep waters of the surrounding ocean in small groups with your trainer, to reach your waiting dolphin. As you are introduced to your dolphin and learn all about their physiology, you will be allowed to touch and stroke this incredible animal. Next, you will be given the unforgettable opportunity of getting hugs and kisses from this friendly creature that brings smiles to the faces of everyone it interacts with.
All too soon, your amazing dolphin encounter comes to an end and you will be transported back over to the main grounds of Anthony's Key Resort. Once there, you will have approximately 45 minutes to change clothes and purchase photos and other souvenirs of your memorable experience before it's time to head back to your ship.
