      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 a 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 be visits to two different animal sanctuaries where 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.


      If you would like to SCUBA add the Certified SCUBA add-on at no extra cost. Rental gear is not included.

      This was an amazing, bucket-list, trip-of-a-lifetime type of trip! The local guide is the absolute best and makes sure you experience the best that Uganda has to offer. The wildlife viewing and the cultural experiences are second to none. You will be planning your return trip before you even finish this one! As always, the trip leader and the rest of the GreenEdventures crew also do a great job and make sure every detail has been planned and taken care of. I can’t recommend this trip or GE enough.

      The Green Edventures Roatan trip was absolutely 100% one of my favorite trips I have ever experienced. The accommodations were perfect. Every bungalow had its own deck jutting out into the crystal clear sea. The wildlife interactions on this trip were absolutely phenomenal sea turtles, sloths, dolphins. Did I mention the SLOTHS?! Snorkeling the Mesoamerican Barrier reef was an experience I will never forget. The Anthony’s Key staff and our phenomenal trip leader Kelly bent over backwards for us daily, which is no easy task! You could really tell everyone involved loves their job and was truly happy to help. I appreciated the educational aspect, learning about the reef and fish and our impact as humans on both. The capstone activity was zip lining which was an absolute blast and the views were breathtaking. I wish I could go on this trip over and over again!

      The trip to Roatan was wonderful. Our trip leader ,Kelly, was very accommodating, , kind and so helpful. The accommodations and employees at Anthony's Key Resort were amazing. The snorkeling was great ! I was not in love with snorkeling before, but this trip changed my mind... warm water, beautiful fish and reefs. Our snorkel guide,Jennifer, shared her knowledge on fish, reefs, and snorkeling. I would highly recommend this trip !!

      Overall I think it was a good trip. The accommodations, food, and weather were perfect. The local people were very friendly and helpful. The snorkeling activities were enjoyable, but you could see the reefs were suffering from some degradation. The tour of the island was interesting but very long - 5 1/2 hours in the van was too much. Swimming with the dolphins was the highlight of the trip for me. Bugs (noseeums) were bothersome. Our trip leader did a good job of managing 16 people. She was kind but sometimes overwhelmed which made her unable to accept suggstions about little changes that people thought would make things better.

      Roatan was another fabulous trip! Resort staff went out of their way to give us the best experience ever. Kelly was our trip leader extraordinaire. Something fun for everyone. Green Edventures is just my kind of touring group. I’ve gone on at least a dozen trips with them and never had a complaint about anything. Terrific activities, learning opportunities, wonderful travel destinations, always great food and excellent staff. The dollar to fun ratio is always better than going with anyone else and that’s why I keep going back to them.

      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?
