Submerse yourself in the underwater world of the manatee, share a kiss and a hug and even feed these magnificent creatures while swimming with them in their home in the sea. You and your family will create memories for a lifetime and share a magical time with these manatees.

    Thank you so much for helping me book this experience. I am so excited to go. I went swimming with the dolphins in the Bahamas but I never went swimming with the sea lions. I really appreciate you helping me book this. J. McCredo ~ Unknown

    I just wanted to take a minute now that I am home to tell you how much we enjoyed the park and all the activities you helped me set up. The sea lion swim was amazing and the show following was really enjoyable. The dolphin swim didn't work out for all of us but we are planning to do the Disney cruise again one day and we will be back for sure. The park is very beautiful and we could not do it all in one day. Look forward to working with you again in the future. Thanks Once again! F. Schenk ~ New Fairfield, CT USA

    Just got back from our cruise and wanted to let you know how much fun we had at Chankanaab Park. My daughter, Emily, had the most wonderful dolphin experience and the $2.00 off coupon for me to get into the park worked like a charm. And, your confirmation email telling us about getting to the park was very helpful. Thank you for the experience! This was well organized and an absolutely perfect day in Cozumel for us! We (the old ladies in my family) are coming back in February, I'll be sure to connect with you again as we'll do the dolphin swim with you again. The Kershek Family ~ Wisconsin, USA

    We just came back from our Cozumel trip. We had a great time and really enjoyed the dolphin program. Thanks for giving our daughter such a great childhood memory!!!! By the way we came back to snow. Hope you are all enjoying the sunshine there!! The Francis family ~ Columbus, OH USA

    Hi Sherri, thank you so much for finalizing our Dolphin Royal Swim and changing the time slot as you suggested. It makes more sense and I really appreciate your input. I will definitely pass your name forward for future travelers. Actually my daughter and her husband gave me your name since they were there last year at your PalMar SMALL Beach Club. Nothing but praise for you. Thanks again, if we get a chance we will try to stop by and say hi. Rich C Rich C. (July 2016) ~ Inverness, FL
