Cozumel Dolphin Swim Excursion

This Dolphin Swim Adventure program 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 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 shore 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 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. The park admission is included in your dolphin tour. Guests in your party who will not be participating in the dolphin activity should book the "An Adventure in Chankanaab" tour in order to enter the park.

5 StarsWhat an experience!April 16, 2018

Reviewer: Heather Brazee
This is a great place to spend the day. My only heads up is that the local taxi's will try and tell you that it's too busy and that if you don't have a reservation you shouldn't go. They get paid to bring you to other areas to hang out... just go right to the National Park when you get off the ship. We didn't, and wish that we would have.

Reviewer: David Taylor
It was an excellent resort, not far from the ship and a really great experience. It was the highlight of our trip, and as a Dad with 3 happy kids, I would have paid twice as much.

Reviewer: Jenny
It was a great experience. When we got there we got a special deal to swim with the manatee's. That was even more one on one time with them and was a blast. Glad we did this and checked it off our bucket list!!!

5 StarsGreat Fun (Don't forget to negotiate)January 08, 2018

Reviewer: Joe
Had to take a cab to the park, which was very simple and I beat the cruise line crowd. Once there it was easy to check in. When they introduce the picture package, do not forget to negotiate. With little effort they reduced and added a cab voucher and the sea lion swim adventure, which I enjoyed more than the dolphin swim. Food was edible, but I was not there for the food.
