Experience the fun of scuba diving and spending time with dolphins in their natural habitat on this Cozumel cruise port trip. You will start with a briefing about the dolphins and an explanation of the activities you will experience. The first part of your program covers dive theory. You'll then practice with the equipment in a shallow area.
Next, you will put what you have learned to the test as you enter the pool with the dolphins and begin an actual dive to a depth of approximately 25 feet. The rulers of this domain will be there to check you out and welcome you to their undersea home. You will have the experience of a lifetime being up close to dolphins, petting, giving and receiving a kiss, and holding one of these beautiful animals in your arms. They will entertain you with their amazing abilities, like the barrel roll around the participants, the presentation of their favorite song, and free jumps.
A professional photographer will be on hand to take pictures.

An amazing excursion, a once in a life time adventure! Even if never drove before. Dive masters were great educating small group of 8, making sure everyone is comfortable in equipment. Meet at noon. Were fitted with equipment. A class lesson on equipment and what to expect. About 1:30 took to the shallow lagoon (10ft) to get comfortable diving. Then scuba'd over to the dolphin area. After a 30-40 minute break, into the dolphin tank with Apollo. Kneeled on the ocean floor at ~19ft. Apollo did barrel rolls, hugs and kiss each participate. Jumping back in the lagoon, scuba'd back to the dive shop. Pictures were available for purchase, a reduced rate from Dolphin Discovery prices paid in past and an email link sent to us, should the DVD get damaged on way home. The only con, if you are on a ship with a 4:30pm ALL ABOARD, it is EXTREMELY tight gettig back to the dock in time - too tight in our opinion. I would love to do this again when schedule is not so tight!
Because we ended up being the only ones doing this excursion we got a private diving lesson and individual attetion. It was the scariest and most amazing thing I have ever done. The fish in Cozemel are beautiful. It was such a great day
