Rafael Lovato Jr

Rafael Lovato Jr. is arguably the best American black belt ever. He is not only a great competitor, but has a special gift many great competitors don’t have, he can teach and coach others to greatness as his schools roster of champions clearly shows.

Scott Nelson

President : OTM Fight Shops

Rafael Lovato, Jr. is the most decorated Brazilian Jiu Jitsu fighter in America, but his skill set as a leader, mentor, instructor and coach to his loyal students are truly what set him apart from the rest. His dedication to his students is probably one of the purest forms I’ve ever seen and their tremendous performances at high level events worldwide proves that. Rafael Lovato Jr.’s academy is a champion factory, not just on the mats, but off the mats too and in real life. I’m proud to have Rafael and his students grace the Grapplers Quest mats and podium past, present and future.

Brian Cimins President

Grapplers Quest

Lovato’s School of Brazilian Jiu-JItsu is a martial arts family with all the moral values and tools necessary to build confidence, fitness and toughness in a fun and safe environment. I’m a witness of the process of learning that Rafael Jr. put into Jiu-Jitsu and I can say that he become one of the best fighters, instructors and training partners in the World!

Diving

Steps Away From an Underwater Wonderland

Roatan’s reef system is a lure for divers from all over the globe in search of natural adventure and pristine waters. And it’s no wonder. It’s the world’s second largest barrier reef, the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef, and it just happens to be our back yard. In addition, Roatan’s warmer water and gentle currents make for great year round visibility.

From vibrant coral, massive sponges and peaceful eel gardens to schools of tropical fish, fleets of eagle rays and sea turtles — marine life here is abundant and mesmerizing. There are approximately 35 dive sites located from West Bay in the south to Man of War Cay, and Anthony’s Key is perfectly situated in the middle.

 
At Anthony’s Key, we want everyone to experience the magical paradise that awaits below the water’s surface. We’re a PADI 5-Star Instructor Development Dive Resort and have been ranked as one of the world’s top dive resorts for the last 45 years.

Whether you’re a newbie diver or returning regular, we have a course to match your skill level. We even offer PADI diving programs for kids!

There are endless opportunities to explore the natural treasures that call the waters of Roatan home. At Anthony’s Key, we make it easy for you to take advantage of those opportunities.

Shore Diving
If three boat dives daily and two scheduled weekly night boat dives don’t quench your dive thirst, then our shore dive site will!  The dive shack on Anthony’s Key is staffed and equipped with air tanks for easy beach access to “Front Porch” reef, a vital area of the reef ecosystem.

Among the varied seascape, you may observe eel, grouper, and octopus as they descend to depths of 40 feet or more, as well as schools of blue tangs, parrotfish, angelfish, damselfish, sea fans, star coral, and brain coral. In addition, a small plane wreck in the lagoon at 30 feet is an excellent training tool for students and novice divers.

Available Monday thru Saturday from 3:00pm to 9:00pm.
