Every Day

This is one of the most famous activity that you can get in Roatan. Meet and interact with a dolphin is probably everybody’s most common dream …and this desire can be true on our island.

The Dolphin Encounter takes place at Bailey’s Key, one of the little keys in front of Anthony’s Key Resort, In Sandy Bay Area. The family of Bottlenose dolphins are living in their private area for years. The experience will start at a beachfront cabaña where you will receive an orientation before to meet the dolphin trainer at the beach and start your encounter in small groups in shallow water enough to stand in: learn about the anatomy, behaviors and strangest curiosities of these beautiful intelligent mammals.

During the encounter you will have the chance to see them in action with jumps and somersaults, caress them and take the usual photo with the famous “kiss”. The 30 minutes adventure includes plenty of photo opportunities, both with your personal camera as well as with an onsite photographers.
