About this trip

The moment you step onto the porch of your overwater bungalow and gaze off into the blue sea flanked by green hills of palms, you will understand why nature-seekers come to Roatan to get away from it all. 

 

Our home for the week is Anthony's Key Resort. An all-inclusive dive resort with pool, spa, full bar, and more. Don't let the word "resort" fool you. Here, there are no high rises with floors of cold, cookie cutter hotel rooms. Instead, there is village of wooden bungalows cocooned in lush palms with adventure right outside your door. 

 

Below the waterline, the resort is hugged by the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System, the largest barrier reef in the northern hemisphere. From the time you plunge into the warm life-filled salty sea, you will wish you had gills to stay forever.  It’s home to thick, vibrant coral, playful dolphins, and varied marine life. Those who want to see the ocean at night, can take a guided night snorkel in search of nocturnal creatures like octopuses!


The reef system here is fabulous for both snorkelers and divers on the same boat. Snorkelers can float over the shallow reef while divers can descend deeper along the reef wall.

 

Near the key is a place where participants will spend a few hours interacting with the resident dolphins including a free swim with the pod! You will be surrounded by dolphins that choose how they interact with you. You will feel their chirps and clicks vibrating through the water, and hear the buzzing sounds they make as they talk to each other! 

 

Topside, island tours will get you off property and introduce you to some of the local culture and sites like seaside towns and Maya Key. There will visits to two different animal sanctuaries will you will meet sloths and monkeys. A exciting adventure will be a thrilling zip line through the rainforest tree tops.

 

This fun-filled week also has time for rest and relaxation during your free time. Swing in a hammock on your oceanfront deck, and feel the sea breezes. Enjoy the use of paddle boards and kayaks. Visit the spa for a massage. 

 

This trip is open to women of all ages 18 years or older. Participants must know how to swim.

This was definitely a once in a lifetime experience. Our schedule was full with a well thought out itinerary that still afforded time to do your own things. I would caution that while the Ausengate Trek was not technical, it does require some pre-training to increase lung capacity and muscle strength. I would also advise that the high altitude medication should be a requirement!!! Nothing can prepare you for altitude sickness and it can put a damper on this amazing experience. The hike via the Inca Trail into Machu Picchu was my favorite. It was so spiritual and magical. Thanks Tara Short and Green Edventures for this amazing adventure that I will never EVER forget!!

Rafting 80 miles on the Main Salmon River was my first experience with Green Edventures. They are a top-notch company and I hope to join them for another trip. Everything from registration to the beginning our trip months later was handled very professionally and expediently. Their staff is knowledgeable and friendly. They have been in the adventure travel business long enough to work out the kinks and deliver a smooth and outrageously fun trip.

Iceland is a beautiful country and Green Edventures is a wonderful way to visit and experience many Icelandic adventures. From hiking to waterfalls, riding Icelandic horses, kayaking and beautiful beaches, the group was a terrific mix of like minded women sharing their enthusiasm for exploring the world. Needless to say, I had a great time! Thora, our Icelandic guide, was delightful! Diana Lyster

A wonderful trip for anyone who loves the ocean! So much wildlife and a much larger appreciation for the island of Roatan. Never a boring day, great food, even better people. Scuba not required but heavily recommended.

I went on an amazing trip with Tara to Baja, Mexico in 2020. This was a dream trip for me being a wildlife lover. It was incredible to be able to swim with whale sharks and sea lions and get up close with gray whales. Camping on the beach was amazing. We had a great group of women and everyone vibed well and all of the tour guides including Tara, Alex and Chabello were so fun, friendly and helpful every step of the way. The food was great at the campsite and at the restaurants we got to try. When our trip plans initially got derailed waiting on a negative Covid test and we had to get a different flight, Tara did everything in her power to accommodate us and make sure we got to enjoy every part of the trip, including setting us up with another whale shark swimming tour after we had missed the initial one with the group, and she spent time waiting for us to finish before leaving for the airport. I definitely recommend Green Edventures, especially the Baja Mexico trip!

I just returned from the Wisconsin Women's Tour and couldn't have asked for a better trip! For me, the amount and type of activity were perfect. Who know there was so much to discover practically in my own backyard?
