Dolphin Swim Adventure at Chankanaab National Marine Park
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 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.
Pregnant women may not participate in this tour. All participants should be competent swimmers and comfortable with the use of mask, fins, and snorkel. Each person is required to wear a life jacket. Sunblock, jewelry, watches, rings, bracelets, or any object which might scratch the dolphin is not permitted in the water with the dolphins. The instructors have the final say on what can and cannot be worn in the water with the dolphins. For security reasons, personal cameras are not allowed in the water, nor in the program area. A professional photographer will be on hand to take pictures, which will be available for purchase.
Our kids had a blast with the dolphins. We also went on a scuba dive, unplanned, at the facility and it was very good as well.

Be very careful when choosing which swimming with Dolphins you are purchasing. There is the 2 Dolphin Royal swim and 1 Dolphin swim. Both are great but you get that little extra with the Royal

Everything was great, son had a very good time, was some confusion after getting off boat on transportation, to park, but it worked out ok

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.
