We are a pretty well traveled family and both of our kids (16 and 13) said that this was the single best experience they have ever had. Now, it is not cheap, but most things in life that are worth it are not cheap. We visited Cozumel via a cruise ship--but booked our excursion directly for one very important reason--you... More

The was one of the most fun thing we did on this cruise. The people running the event really were very helpful to the people who showed us the pictures at the end. We even did a picture shot in sea lion tank that we will cherish for ever. If my wife and I ever get back to dolphin island... More

Way overpriced. Buffet lunch was hot dogs and Nacho chips. Photo pricing for 2 people was $140 American. You cannot take your own pictures here.

We did the dolphin discovery as part of the Chankanaab Park excursion from our Palace Hotel. We used resort credits to do this tour. It was the highest level at the park, I guess that means , not only do you get to have the dolphins swim by you so you can touch them you also get a couple of... More

We really enjoyed swimming with the dolphin at Dolphin Discovery in Cozumel. Our daughter 9 and 11 were just amazed of their swimming experience with the dolphins. They also enjoyed greeting the manatee in the water. The only cons is that you cannot have someone on the pier to take pictures, you need to purchased them and it is quite... More

Visited as part of a cruise ship excursion so spending more time there might have netted even more experiences. We booked the dolphin encounter, there are multiple options ranging from standing on a ledge and watching other people play with dolphins all the way to holding onto a dolphin as it pulls you across the water. The encounter was in... More

The tour was awesome the people were great. Friendly and very helpful. Love the dolphins. The only negative thing was the food. It was awful and unappetizing. Trying to get our photos any help would be appreciated.

We booked this as an excursion from our cruise and we wish we would of had more time at this place. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We did the VIP dolphin experience and did some snorkeling. We didn't have enough time to do even a fraction of what was available. Would love to go back to spend more... More
