Cozumel Dolphin Swim Excursion

This Cozumel Dolphin Swim at Chankanaab National Marine Park was established especially for you and the dolphins to share sensational and safe activities while establishing a unique bond of trust.

During the session, you will personally interact with these highly intelligent and friendly sea mammals. Your professional instructor will teach you about dolphins, their environment, and their behavior. You will also learn several training techniques on this Cozumel dolphin excursion.

Then, you will enter the water (life jackets required) and thoroughly enjoy this incredible experience with the dolphins. Using a snorkeling mask, you will immerse yourself in their world and discover the special bond between humans and dolphins. They will tenderly say hello with their fins, they will kiss you, sing for you, take you for a ride on their belly, and you will be able to swim in Caribbean waters while they jump or play with you.

The Cozumel dolphin excursion is one hour, with 30 minutes of swim time. The group size is limited to 12 people to ensure a very personal experience.

A professional photographer will be present to capture all the magical moments through videos and photographs, which will provide you with tangible memories of your Cozumel tour that you can take home with you for an additional cost.

Please Note: The park admission is included in your dolphin tour. Guests in your party who will not be participating in the dolphin activity (including children under 8 years old who are unable to participate in this activity) should book the "An Adventure in Chankanaab" tour in order to enter the park. The park is open from 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM local time, and guests may arrive at any time. The park offers a beach, swimming pool and snorkel area. Restrooms and showers are available. Beach chairs, lockers and snorkel gear can be rented. There is a restaurant offering food and drinks for sale. There is a sea lion show and dolphin presentation most days; check the schedule when you arrive for shows that day. There is also a manatee exhibition and self-guided archaeological tour available.

So much fun.

Short of the long line to get a cab to get there this was an excellent excursion. We snorkeled before our dolphin swim and they even let you go see the manatees after the dolphins. We were extra lucky that both our mom dolphins had babies we were able to see up close. This was definitely a once in a lifetime day.

I can not believe how awesome this excursion was, it allowed my son and I to check off a bucket list item. I have always wanted to swim, touch, experience dolphins and this was the perfect way. I would highly recommend this to anyone that loves and want to experience dolphins.

Great Excursion

This excursion was the best. We were educated about the dolphins and they were precious. Chankanaab National Marine Park has a lot of other stuff to do while there so plan your day there. They have mayan ruins, snorkeling, scuba diving, pools, hammocks and a beach to relax on. Beautiful there and I would highly recommend this excursion.

Wonderful family experience
July 24, 2019
I purchased the swimming with dolphins excursions which is an amazing time with my family. We were able to do so much with the dolphins, we swam, danced, kissed and was given a kiss back, amd was even put on top of a boggie board while they pushed us. We also got to get up close and personal with and feed a manatee. I didnt even expect that. The only reason I am giving them 4 stars is because the price of pictures was outrageous. My family of four they wanted to charge me $260. They were not the best pictures seeing that we were completely exposed to the sun and it was so bright in almost every picture our eyes were all closed. So i only purchased 2 pictures of my kids only for $40 each. I have friends who have done this same excursion in other countries and not even paid half of that. It was kind of disappointing. I expected to pay for the photos but I felt like that was robbery.
