Comments They ensured we were experienced certified divers by doing an abbreviated short qualification dive prior to anything else. I really did appreciate this, as I've been on plenty of dives with others that claimed to be experienced, only to ruin the scene and/or event for the rest of us.
They then took us (we had 4 divers in our group) through a ~15min education on the dolphin anatomy, and what to expect with how they interact with humans.
Then we went on our dive (short boat trip out of the bay, into open waters). We went down ~50-55 feet to the sea bottom. We all circled around the Dive Master, waiting for dolphins to show up. We did have to move around a little to various areas the Dive Master took us to await them, but after ~15mins, we did have sightings with several dolphins. After ~20mins, two of them repeatedly swam through our group, allowing us to stroke them and watch them talk and interact with the Dive Master. The whole dive took about 50 mins, which seemed to go by way too fast. But we all had a great experience from the trip.
I plan to look up Anthony's Key Resort on the web when I get back home from our cruise to see about coming back some time in the future for a Dive Vacation at the Resort. It looked very clean and well kept. It looked to be an excellent place to come to for a Dive Vacation.

UW Photo Comments I used my GoPro camera, and they had all I needed for preparations for using it, and then cleaning it afterwards.
I worked out great for our Dolphin Dive Excursion.
