Cozumel Dolphin Swim Adventure
Come to Chankanaab Beach Adventure Park for a unique opportunity to swim with the dolphins and find out why these fun, playful mammals are the most popular attraction in Cozumel! Experience the joy of a dolphin kiss, hugs and handshake and then marvel at the dolphin’s strength as you are towed through the water with a "belly ride." This activity was designed especially for you to experience the unique opportunity to bond with the dolphins. You will fall in love with their gentleness, intelligence and inquisitive natures during your experience.

Your Dolphin Swim Adventure program will start dockside with a briefing by your certified trainer who will give details about the individual activities and safely procedures of interacting with the dolphins. After your briefing, participants will enter the water onto a submerged platform where you will stand for you initial introduction to your new dolphin friend. There will be lots of interactions during this stage of the program as you get to greet the dolphin, touch it, receive hugs and handshakes, listen to them sing and finally pose for a big dolphin kiss. All participants will watch during the individual greetings and behaviors and then all will have plenty of free time to interact while the dolphin plays amongst everyone freely.

    My daughter, 13 did the dolphin swim and it was the best time of her life.. up close and personal with scarlet.. the pictures were beautiful and the video wonderful.. this was a once in a life time event that she will remember for her entire life... well worth the 99.00 and the additional 75.00 for pics and video coverage.. if you can afford to do this, this is not to be missed.. it was the highlight of the entire vacation... go and have fun, well worth the cost and a lot of fun to be had. WONDERFUL TIME....

    Two friends and I booked the dolphin swim AND got the manatee encounter for 15 minutes for thru Cozumel Insider. The manatee was FREE. The price, including the park, was only $88 when booked in advance. The park fee alone is $21...that's $77 PP for both a dolphin swim with about 11 others, incl. 4 children, AND the manatee. Our party of 3 were the only ones to get the manatee and she was a highlight of our trip. We got to feed her lettuce for almost 15 minutes as the guide explained her life to us. We are grateful for both experiences at such a great price. Thanks, Sherri. I can see where it's harder to find your story on your site. Can you repost it? It's very unusual and inspirational to others. Cheryl & Michael, MA C. Pimental ~ Hingham, MA 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

    The royal dophin swim was wonderful! My husband and I can't wait to come back and do it again. Thanks! Tara ~ Ohio, USA

    Martin - I just wanted to thank you so much for all your assistance in booking our dolphin experience. Despite the torrential rain (liquid sunshine) on 19th October the girls had a fabulous time at their swim. We loved Cozumel and hope to return one day to see it in better conditions. When I finish our unpacking and get over the jet lag I will do a Trip Advisor review for you! C. McDade (October 2015) ~ Glasglow, Scotland UK
