Excursion Description

Your Cozumel dolphin encounter begins with an informative presentation by Chankanaab dolphin trainers prepares you for the fun to come in your Dolphin Encounter & Sea Lion Show at Chankanaab shore excursion.

It’s time to meet the dolphins! Everyone in your group is outfitted with a life vest and stands on a submerged platform in waist-deep water. A happy, playful dolphin swims over and your Cozumel Dolphin Encounter begins! Touch the dolphin’s soft, smooth skin and watch as it rolls over for a belly rub. Get ready for the thrilling finale: the gentle dolphin kiss! 

From the Dolphin Discovery area, head to Chankanaab’s free sea lion show, where you and other Carnival Cruise guests laugh out loud as you watch the hilarious antics of the three resident sea lions. Born entertainers, the sea lions “sing,” dance and leap with joy during the 20-minute show.

Your time is then free to explore the wonders of Chankanaab Park, a lush conservation area that is Cozumel’s most popular attraction. Snorkel in Chankanaab Lagoon, an ancient cenote filled with tropical fish. Stroll the park’s colorful botanical gardens or take a cool dip in the pool. Hungry guests can purchase Mexican specialties like guacamole, chicken quesadillas, and nachos at the park’s snack bar and bistro and buy refreshing drinks at the pool bar or beach bar. Your magical day at Chankanaab ends with the short taxi ride back to your Carnival cruise ship.
