I have been coming to Anthony's Key Resort since 1992 and on many occasions have participated in the Dolphin Encounter and when it was added, the Dolphin Snorkel. I have also done the Dolphin Dive, which was an absolute ball. This time I went to RIMS at AKR to introduce my 17 month old granddaughter to the dolphins. The dolphin - Champ - was great, as was the trainer who provided us great explanations of the behaviors and training. My granddaughter had a great time and you would have thought that she wanted to ride the dolphin like a mini-mermaid. Because of her, we didn't do the snorkel, but we did stay at AKR and had lunch before my 8 yr. old grandson did the Dolphin Action Swim with Mr. French and Reggie. For a child his age, this is a fabulous experience and I would recommend this to most kids, if they have the opportunity. Swimming ability is a plus, but everyone is wearing a flotation device so the child does not have to be a swimmer. Three years ago, he was one of the first to do that at 5 yrs. old and I can't wait to compare the photos. When he was 6, he did the dolphin trainer for a day with his two older cousins and really enjoys the dolphins and the whole experience. There are plenty of opportunities for you to take pictures, but get the pictures at the photo shop. The RIMS photographers have better spots and have had a lot of practice taking the pictures. They are worth every penny and might possibly end up as your next Christmas card. Since my youngest grandson will be on Roatan in about four weeks, I know that the whole family will be back.
