Dolphin programs at the Roatan Institute for Marine Sciences offer the rare opportunity for divers and snorkelers to interact with dolphins on the mammal’s own initiative. Choose from an open-water dive with dolphins where you can observe them in their natural habitat, or the dolphin snorkel which provides more opportunity for physical contact. For those who prefer to stay in waist-deep water, the dolphin beach encounter is a popular option.
