Cozumel Dolphin Royal Swim Program
The Dolphin Royal Swim is by far the most popular dolphin interaction activity in Cozumel and for good reason. This dolphin program can best be described in two words: "action" and "speed." Get a handshake, a kiss and then you give the dolphins one, too! Feel the strength power of your new dolphin friends as they push you across the water from the bottom of your feet in the thrilling foot-push activity. It truly is "the experience of a lifetime!"

The Dolphin Royal Swim Program excitement starts with a swim-by, then a very special "kiss" and on to the demonstration of several different behaviors including the "Foot Push" where the dolphins will push you through the water just like Superman and the "Dorsal Tow" where you will have the chance to be pulled across the water surface by two dolphins, the "Hurdle Jump" and then finally "Free Time" where you can interact freely with the two Atlantic Bottle-nosed dolphins as you would like.

Dolphin Discovery Dolphin Discovery Cozumel is located in Chankanaab National Marine Park. As well as offering world class diving and snorkeling from a pristine beach, this beautiful park houses a variety of birds, the sea lion show, a botanical garden, reproductions of famous archeological sites, a typical Mayan village, an underground river, a tropical lagoon teeming with brightly colored tropical fish, restaurants and bars as well as a dive shop and Sea Trek helmet diving. So you will definitely want to allow time to enjoy the park either before or after your dolphin activity.

We just came back from our Cozumel trip. We had a great time and really enjoyed the dolphin program. Thanks for giving our daughter such a great childhood memory!!!! By the way we came back to snow. Hope you are all enjoying the sunshine there!! The Francis family ~ Columbus, OH

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
