- Dolphin Studies in Honduras--Best Trip EVER!09/08/15
This program was a full 14 days on the beautiful island of Roatan, part of the Bay Islands, in Honduras. You have the opportunity to do what you want each day, whether that be scuba dive with others on the local reefs, fully guided by dive masters, snorkel
with other guests at the resort, lay by the pool, go horseback riding on the beaches, go kayaking or whatever! As long as you attend the scheduled class time each day, you have free reign to all of Anthony's Key Resort amenities! We got to get up close and personal with the dolphins that are studied there, including a bunch of behind the scenes type work. Overall, greatest two weeks of my life! Love the amount of scuba diving I was able to do!read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
