We went on the Dolphin Snorkel and Swim @ Anthony's Key. AMAZING!! Not only did we get to see the dolphins up close, touch them, watch their tricks and get our photos taken with them, we got to swim and snorkel in the lagoon with 24 Atlantic bottlenose dolphin. Words can't describe the feeling of having those magnificent creatures swim right up to you or race past you. Worth every penny.

Beautiful - did the dolphin excursion at Anthony's Key Resort - OMG, fabulous time and the dolphins are basically your pet there! Get to take pictures with your own camera to capture the experience.

Zip lining was awesome, even for some one who doesn't like heights. We hit the beach after and I had a massage right on the beach and we enjoyed some local beer and great jerk chicken with beans and rice.

ride to our destination was long and hot! Buses didn't have good ac...must bring water to your excursion as it will get really hot at times. Our tour was at 9am and it felt like it was noon of how hot it got. Not for smaller children, lots of walking!

My opinion NO need to go on an excursion. Just buy the magical chair lift for kicks and giggles and go over to the beach and hang out! The island is gorgeous! My parents and I shopped in the port and then went to the beach! We had a blast! They play awesome music all day and the island is beautiful! The chair lift is worth the 12 bucks just to be up in the air and see the view! Once again if your an avid shopper, the shopping is fair! However if you are a Harley Davidson person, this Harley store is GREAT!

The port where the ship docked was an amazing site. Beautiful views, hills and water. They had an amazing shopping area. We did an excursion of zip lining and ATV's. We got the opportunity to climb some hills to get to the zip line, which was great if you appreciate trees. The tour guides pointed out amazing old trees. We got to fly through the canopies and see tons of birds. On the ATV tour, more animals, trees and points of interest were pointed out. We got to ATV over the mountains and then onto the beach. How amazing!!! Mahogany Beach was another nice stop. They have ski lift type chairs to go over to that beach (or you could walk). It was like a resort style beach with restrooms, lockers and lounge chairs all the while on the beach. The water was amazing, with the back drop of old shipwrecks.

This was our favorite port, we went to a reef that was stunning, so much to see, we will visit this place again and soon. Our guide, George, was very knowledgable and spent time explaining things and safety was always first.

Wished had more time at this port. Didn't do an excursion, but visited the shopping area at Mahogany Bay that Carnival built. Very clean and friendly. Liked Fat Tuesday's and the view from their balcony. This area could be livened up a bit with local musicians and more local vendors. Overall, very nice area with beach and shopping.

I would definitely recommend hiring a Roatan native to show you around the island. They can take you to sites that you wouldn't normally know about through guide books. BEAUTIFUL beaches and the snorkeling is INCREDIBLE!

Too commercial. We should have gone into the local areas but didn't have time. Mahogany Bay Beach is crushed shells...bring water shoes. It is also VERY CROWDED!

Nice shopping for local handcrafts. Beautiful cloth/embroidered shoulder hipster bags. The chair lift has gone up in price to $12 for all day. A great bird's eye view, and quick ride to the beach, but now pricey. Lots of empty chairs as compared to 1 1/2 years ago, when the price was $6 for all day.
