This tour was awarded Trip Advisor’s Certificate of Excellence for three consecutive years - 2011, 2012 and 2013! Swim with the world’s most fascinating creatures in a tropical atmosphere for a 40-minute dolphin swim, complete with an exciting belly ride, enjoy unlimited food and drinks, snorkel with tropical fish in the natural aquarium and venture onto the ocean for kayaking and paddle boarding. You’ll meet with your guide outside your cruise ship for an approximate 5-minute taxi ride along the coast to the facility. Upon arrival, you’ll attend a 10-minute interactive orientation session so you can learn more about the dolphins’ history, physiology and anatomy. Then make your way to a waist-deep platform in the waters of the lagoon to immerse yourself in the magical underwater world of the bottlenose dolphins. As you head into deeper water, you’ll be given a snorkel mask to see how the dolphins turn, glide and hurl themselves high into the air. Hold on tight during the famous belly ride! You can grab onto a dolphin’s fins while racing across the water at top speeds for a thrilling experience.
Relax after your dolphin swim and take full advantage of everything the facility has to offer. Stop by the palapa restaurant for lunch with the family and cool off with alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. Kids and adults alike will love Serenity Cove, a safe inlet with snorkel equipment where you can swim through an underwater aquarium filled with tropical fish, rays and starfish! Head out to the ocean for fun-filled activities like kayaking and paddle boarding. All water activities are available on a first-come-first-served basis. The Dolphin Swim & Ride program includes all food, beverages, snorkeling, kayaking and paddle boarding. Photos, videos, souvenirs and lockers are at an additional charge. After your tour, you can easily walk into downtown Cozumel for some great shopping before heading back to the dolphin entrance where your transportation will take you back to the ship.
