Anthony's Key Resort, Roatan Dive Sites

  • Perhaps no island in the Caribbean offers more distinctive or easily accessible dive sites than Roatan, with approximately 35 dive sites located from West Bay in the south to Man of War Cay. Anthony’s Key Resort is conveniently located in the middle and within a short boat ride of many of Roatan's top dive sites.
  • The island’s reefs and drop-offs are teeming with colorful marine life and are ideally suited for novices and experts alike. Surrounded by the longest barrier reef in the hemisphere, Roatan’s diving sites offer everything from hard-core wrecks and deep fissures to peaceful eel gardens and shallow terraces where countless macro photo opportunities abound.
  • Coral grows thickly on walls that begin in crystalline waters as shallow as 20 feet below the surface and drop to the purple depths of the Caribbean. Squadrons of eagle ray, schools of brightly colored tropical fish, and the occasional meandering shark are just a few of the Roatan scuba sites that delight divers.
  • Several large wrecks submerged near the resort, await exploration. With water temperatures averaging 80 degrees or warmer, gentle currents and visibility ranging from 50 to 100 feet, Roatan is a favorite among visitors who prefer their diving colorful, thrilling and unswerving.

Anthony's Key Resort (AKR) is a great, well-established and well-respected resort that offers guests the best of what the Honduran Island of Roatan has to offer.
The resort is first class, compared to other resorts I have visited on this island and also in this neighborhood. It is in good repair, has beautiful grounds, and a great dining area with good food. Other resorts in the area that I have visited have been run down and had problems with hot water, plumbing, mildew, etc. This resort is very well maintained.
You have a choice of hilltop rooms or rooms right on the water, on a small island a couple hundred feet from the resort. The hilltop rooms start at S168/night, and the rooms on the water (key rooms) start at 214/night. We stayed in hilltop superior room and were very happy. These rooms are closer to the resort, dive shop, and dining areas, but the key rooms are conveniently serviced by a water taxi that is available 24 hours a day. The hilltop rooms are accessed by beautiful wooden walkways through the lush jungle and lined with beautiful flowers, where agoutis (local rodents that are almost like a cross between rabbits and squirrels) and colorful birds can be seen foraging in the bushes. The meals were good and plentiful, with a wide variety of continental and local cuisine that included fresh fruits and vegetables, and wonderful, homemade ice cream.
The dive resort and fleet of boats were well-run and well maintained. The dive masters and boat crews were personable and once they were comfortable with your diving skills, were happy to let you dive your own profile. They approached life with a relaxed, Caribbean vibe, that, as an experienced diver, I appreciated, but were always attentive and ready to help those newer to the sport. The only complaint that I had was that they did not always seem as diligent at finding and pointing out critters, as say dive guides at a resort like Crystal Blue in the Philippines.
The diving itself was good, with quite a bit of variety, but there were not as many large schools of fish as I would have preferred. This is probably partly due to over-fishing and partly due to the invasive lionfish, but dive guides are attempting to train local predators, such as moray eels to eat the lionfish, and seem to be having some success. I definitely saw fewer of them around AKR than in the Bahamas, for example. There were many turtles, and some very interesting canyons and swim throughs, my favorite one being Spookie Channel, and of course, the well-known Mary’s Place. They offer 3 boat dives a day, and unlimited shore diving, but I did not take advantage of the shore diving during my trip, and I heard from other guests that it was somewhat lackluster. I did spend one day snorkeling under the dock where the dive boats are kept, and found quite a few interesting critters. AKR does offer two exceptional experiences at an extra cost: a shark dive and a dolphin dive. The shark dive was very well run and featured beautiful Caribbean Reef sharks that you were allowed to swim around with for 20 minutes or so before the feeding actually commenced. There were probably 10-15 sharks in attendance. The food is kept in a five gallon bucket that is opened by pulling on a rope, towards the end of the dive, so that the divers get a chance to swim with the sharks first, and so the sharks don’t get accustomed to actually being fed by divers—a good and safe arrangement in my opinion. The dolphin dive features dolphins that have been raised in the dolphin research center that is onsite at AKR, but occurs in open water. The dolphins are introduced to the divers in their fenced off lagoon and demonstrate a series of tricks and behaviors, including some amazing vocalizations, before being released into the open ocean for the 40 minute dive experience. This was a great experience, and I was able to get a few good shots of them swimming by, which, to me were much more interesting than watching them do tricks.
Overall, this is a great destination for guests who want a nice resort, good food, and good value, and easy diving, and is also good for photographers, especially those wanting to shoot wide angle and see dolphins, turtles, and sharks. It might be more disappointing for those expecting a lot of macro subjects, or reefs teaming with large schools of fish, although the reefs themselves appeared to be in good condition for the most part. In my opinion, it was definitely money well-spent.

Have been to Anthony's Key twice. Once in 1996 and again in 2011. First trip was in August and the 2nd one in November. First trip unbearably hot (and back then the rooms were not air conditioned, something that improved over the years) and the 2nd one was November (rainy season and it rained TONS every day - if going this time of year invest in a good rain suit!). Just can't seem to find the right season, which is extremely important. I have to mention the no-seeums, horrendous the first and 2nd trip and apparently absolutely nothing to keep them at bay no matter what you try. All that said we had a good time on both trips. Each time stayed on the key and water taxied back and forth to the main part of the resort. The bungalows improved quite a lot over the years and had comfortable beds, large bathroom, small fridge, cold a/c, huge covered deck over the water with 2 hammocks overlooking the ocean. There is now a pool on the island side with a nice bar too. They claim to have wifi, but the only place you could get online was the main bar. There is still a very steep set of stairs to go up and down for every meal. If you're young and strong, no problem, but if you have any issue walking and climbing or if you happen to get sick, this is not the place for you. The food was much better the 2nd time around and we enjoyed our meals. All open air seating, so no a/c or screens from the bugs at meals, so that could be better. Rustic is part of the charm, but I at least like to be comfortable at dinner. The dive boats are nice, though a few too many divers on a couple of the trips out. We really enjoyed our crew and the diving was really nice. We had a number of equipment failures and they were more than accommodating in getting us fixed up. Had a bc valve problem and they fixed it fast and cheap so gave him a really nice tip as well as our crew since they did an excellent job. All of the staff at the resort was helpful and friendly. Diving is typical carribean diving, which means it is really good. Turtles, rays, dolphin, and all of the fabulous, colorful fish, reef, drift, wreck and wall dives; so a great variety. The resort includes the Marine Institute and you can do dolphin dives for a fee, but you can get lucky and see them on a regular dive. You can taxi to Bailey's Key (part of the resort) and see the dolphins all you want for free or snorkel with them for an additional fee. The resort does have a chamber in case of emergency and is the only one close. All in all, it's a great place if you're looking for a very outdoorsy vacation with friends, unencumbered by modern life. Feels good doesn't it to log off for a week enjoying what life is really all about. Eat, sleep, dive, drink...then do it all over again.

This was a trip of a lifetime! The staff here are great and take care of everything. My BCD had a malfunction and their knowledgeable "tech" department helped to fix my equipment, so I never missed a dive- Denny- is the best!
The dive sites are all amazing and we saw turtles on every dive. The dolphin encounter is a once and a lifetime experience. The dive shop is well run (as a former SCUBA instructor, I approve) I saw several folks taking courses and chatted with the instructors- 5 star PADI shop! The resort is for all ages, but there were fewer folks under 30 years old. The food is predetermined, but excellent. Happy hour's even better!

This Resort is everything you hope for in a Dive resort. It's paradise on earth. The bungalows are spacious and the one we had came with a private patio overlooking the ocean with two hammocks. There was a fridge and a spacious bathroom. We would nap on the hammocks between the morning dives and the afternoon dives and we were a few feet away from the beach where the shore diving was. The staff was very friendly, the boats were spacious and the divemaster would always ask us our opinion to pick the best spots for our next dive. They have lockers right next to the dock so you don't have to carry your gear from your room to the boat every time you dive. The food was excellent with both Local and international choices for Breakfast and the lunches and dinners always had a great selection for the meat eaters and fish eaters (It might be a little hard to eat for the Vegetarians and the vegans). The dolphin shows were a fun add-on and the nightly events were a great way to meet other divers and enjoy the island. The closest city is about 5 mn away by Taxi and is a great place to visit on the last day or just to get away from the resort. The highlights of our diving experience were the infamous "Shark Dive" and the two wrecks that they offer are must-see (but they are deep so you would need to be an advanced diver)

I spent a week at Anthony’s Key from April 26th – May 3rd of this year – my first trip to Roatan. From arrival to departure, I found the resort team organized and friendly. They clearly cater to divers and have gotten the process down to an art form.

The resort staff greeted us at the airport and loaded all of our luggage into a separate van. The guests boarded an air-conditioned bus and once everyone was accounted for, off we went! Upon arriving to the resort, we proceeded to reception where they collected all of our necessary documents, provided us with wristbands that indicated we were divers (there was a different color for snorkelers) and we all enjoyed a welcome rum punch.

We had a short wait before we could get into our rooms, so we headed down to the dive shop to show our cert cards and get our dive locker/lock assignment. The lockers were plenty spacious and a hanger was provided. I would have appreciated a second hanger, but I made it work with one.

My room was a key superior, so I had to take a small water taxi to get out to the key. It basically runs back and forth constantly throughout the day and we never had to wait more than a couple of minutes. All you had to do was bang on the hanging scuba tank to call it over if it wasn’t already on its way.

When we got into our rooms, our luggage had already been delivered and was waiting outside of our assigned rooms. The room itself was spacious and well-appointed, with A/C (not all rooms have this but it’s a must-have for me personally) a queen bed, small desk, mini refrigerator, an in-room safe and a lovely deck facing the water. There were two hammocks and a lounge chair for relaxing as well as a clothesline to hang wet bathing suits. Free internet was provided to all guests and I never had a problem getting connected.

Meals were delicious and food was plentiful. There was a breakfast buffet but you could also order off of the menu. I highly recommend trying the Honduran breakfast! Lunch and dinner started with soup or salad, your choice of entree and dessert. Be sure to keep track of your servers and bartenders. They suggest tipping at the end of your trip versus at each meal but I lost track of who took care of me and when. If I go again, I will tip as I go because I want to be sure that I am appropriately taking care of the people that are taking care of me.

The dive operation was excellent. I was traveling as a single within a large group. Boats were never overcrowded and our captain and divemaster made great efforts to ensure we had a great time. If there was a particular critter divers wanted to see, they would take you where you had the best chance of a sighting. I was pleasantly surprised with the amount and variety of sea life and the reefs were healthy for the most part. All diving was from their well-maintained fleet of boats. There is one shore dive site located off of Anthony’s Key, but I never made it there as you had to carry your gear over. I just wasn’t that motivated.

I signed up for both the shark dive and the dolphin dive, which were available for an additional charge. The shark dive was fantastic and well-run. There were probably 15 – 18 sharks present and lots of great action. The dolphin dive ended up being cancelled, as the dolphins went AWOL on the previous day. Apparently, it happens from time-to-time, but I was told they usually come back eventually.

All in all, it was a wonderful, rustic resort and a good time was had by all. My only word of caution would be to be sure to apply bug spray (with Deet) often. I thought I had escaped getting bitten by the no-seeums, but I got a little lax with applying bug spray during the last day we were there and a few days after getting home, found myself covered with itchy red bumps.

I would definitely go back again one day!
