Have a thrilling time with two fun loving dolphins while in Roatan! On this excursion you will travel 25 minutes by bus to the Roatan Institute for Marine Sciences at Anthony’s Key Resort. Then travel across the lagoon to the pristine Bailey’s Key, the private island home to a large family of Atlantic Bottlenose dolphins.
Begin this dynamic dolphin activity with a brief introduction to two dolphins, who will greet you on the platform with a handshake, a kiss, and a friendly smile.
You’ll then enter the water for a playful swim to experience an exciting “Footpush”, as the dolphins push you by the feet above and around the water’s surface, allowing you to feel their speed and strength! Then, take it easy on a ride around the lagoon, while holding on their smooth dorsal fins for the famed “Dorsal Ride”. In addition, watch various water behaviors, vocal skills, tail splashes and applause.
Note: Participants must be 5 years or older to participate. An adult must accompany ages 5-13. Participants must be able to swim. Participants will wear a lifejacket while in the water. Professional photographs will be taken during the activity. Total time with the dolphins is 30 minutes.
