Great facilities and service, if expensive.  Unfortunately, nothing to take
photos of.  It's a bad sign when most of the trip video consists of shots
of other divers.

I went here on the recommendation of a friend who visited at the same time
last year and saw eagle rays, sea horses, turtles, nurse sharks, even
orcas.  I was very disappointed at the lack of critters on my own trip -
average of only 2 animals (other than reef fish) per dive.  This is a well
run operation with beautiful boats, good service, helpful staff, good
accomodations, above average food in a pretty setting, but all that stuff
doesn't matter if there's nothing to see.  The only remarkable animals from
a whole week of 3 dives per day were distant eagle rays, 1 turtle, a
sharptail eel and the decent size groupers that were usually hanging out
under the boat.  There are a couple sites with interesting topography:
arches, caves, steeply walled coral mazes, but this doesn't make for a week
of diving.  Divemasters were only marginally motivated to find critters and
limited all dives to a maximum of 45 minutes; I routinely came up with more
than 1000psi.  If you just want to relax in a nice setting, AKR comes
through at a good value for the money - remember though, tipping is
expected.  With the dolphins, picnics, snorkel trips and horseback riding,
Anthony's Key is a great place for famiies and groups; experienced divers
will be BORED.
