Comments Our second trip to Anthony's Key Resort. Still the same reliable operation that we remembered. Well maintained resort, excellent service, comfortable (if air conditioned) accomodations, good food for an all inclusive package, complete dive operation with several large boats, enjoyable if not spectacular diving. This is a good place for families with the Dophin Center next door, plus it is a good value.
The negative is the heat and no see ums. Probably didn't help that we were there in June. We had to upgrade to an air conditioned room. Nothing seemed to repel the bugs but it was manageable.
Boats come back to dock after each dive and you can do three dives a day. Also have night dives couple of times a week and there is a shore dive area. Our Divemaster, Dennis (who we also had on our first trip), was very efficient and good at finding small critters. He set the parameters for the dive, kept an eye on everyone who stuck near him but also allowed anyone to do their own profile.
Didn't see much big stuff, several small turtles, but lots of fish species and beautiful coral. We particularly enjoyed the many "swim through" opportunities. Two good wreck dives, the Aquila and the Odyessy. Big green Moray is very active near the former. Particularly enjoyed being inside the bridge of the Odyessy and seeing a large barracuda watching me on the outside.
Mary's Place is an outstanding, world class dive site with a good descending "swim through" and wall with big drop off. Saw a Sea Horse in shallower water on top of the wall. Also recommend Spooky Channel because it is a different experience - like being in a rocky canyon. Bears Den was another favorite because of "swim through".
Another good dive trip!
