The Dolphin Encounter begins as you travel across our lagoon to Bailey’s Key, one of two keys that make up Anthony's Key Resort and the private home to a large family of Atlantic Bottlenose dolphins. At a beach-front cabana, you'll receive a brief orientation and then you'll walk along a white sandy beach to wade waist deep into the gin-clear waters of the Caribbean where a trained naturalists will give you a personal introduction to a resident dolphin.
