A brand new experience!

Once thought to be mermaids, manatees are beautiful and enormous marine mammals. These gentile giants can grow as long as 13ft/4m and weigh up to 1300 lbs/600 kg! Dolphin Discovery is thrilled to offer the greatest Cozumel tour the Manatee Encounter. This one-of-a-kind adventure is the only swim with manatees program in the Caribbean. Among the many things to do in Cozumel, this is the best program with marine animals.
Visit the manatee, share a hug and even feed these magnificent creatures while swimming with them in their home. You and your family will share a magical time with our manatees and discover what we love about Cozumel.
Bring your family to swim with manatees in the paradise of Chankanaab National Park surrounded by beautiful flora and fauna with views of the turquoise sea. Our manatees welcome you to Cozumel and hope that you enjoy your Manatee Encounter, an absolute unique and out-of-this-worldadventure.
