Excursion Description

 

Embark on a premium dolphin adventure during your day on exciting Cozumel! Dolphinaris Cozumel is a haven with calm ocean coves where you can interact safely with the world’s most fascinating creatures in a vibrant tropical atmosphere during a 40-minute dolphin experience! Dig in to unlimited food and drinks, enjoy snorkeling with tropical fish in our natural aquarium, and venture into the clear blue ocean of Cozumel for kayaking and paddle boarding, all at no additional cost. Then, take advantage of a top location in downtown Cozumel to experience the nearby shopping. Dolphinaris was rated TripAdvisor’s preferred dolphin attraction in Cozumel in 2011, 2012 and 2013!

To start your adventure, you’ll meet up with your guide outside your cruise ship and take an approximately 5-minute taxi ride along the coast to Dolphinaris Cozumel.

Begin the Dolphin Encounter program with a 10-minute interactive orientation session where you’ll learn about the dolphins’ history, physiology and anatomy in a fun environment. Next, step onto a waist-deep platform in one of our sparkling lagoons to experience a world of dolphin excitement! Greet your new dolphin friend with a “fin shake”, a hug and a kiss. By the end of this unforgettable experience, you’ll even be able to feed the dolphins, just like our trainers do.

To relax after an action-packed dolphin interaction, take full advantage of everything Dolphinaris Cozumel has to offer. Stop by the palapa restaurant for lunch with the family including hamburgers, hot dogs, pizza, fajitas, salad and rice. Cool off with unlimited 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!

Looking for something more adventurous? Head out to the ocean for fun-filled activities like kayaking and paddle boarding on the Caribbean Sea so you can view the dazzling water from a great vantage point. All water activities are available on a first-come-first-served basis.

The Dolphin Encounter program, food, beverages, snorkeling, kayaking and paddle boarding are all available under the all inclusive plan, while photos, video, souvenirs towels and lockers have an extra cost.

After having a blast in the cool and clear waters, visitors can easily walk into downtown Cozumel for some great shopping and picture-taking before heading back to the Dolphinaris entrance. Our transportation will take you back to the ship after an exciting 3.5-hour visit to Dolphinaris.
