Family trip experience was far beyond our expectations! We swam with dolphins and mani ties! Got a ride from the dolphin and kisses! Snorkeling was fabulous finding the hidden treasures! A great family experience! Pictures were a bit pricey but it's a once in a lifetime experience!

Went here with my girlfriend and really enjoyed the intimate encounter with dolphins and manatees. David is very knowledgeable and speaks excellent English. Not a cheap activity at $100 USD per person, then $140 for the pictures they take of you to bring home, but much more ethical than sea world, and Lots to see in the park.

It seemed a little expensive initially, but the experience is once-in-a-lifetime memorable and now seems completely worth it! We loved Dolphin Discovery in Cozumel and spent almost a half day there or more. The interaction experiences with dolphins, manatees, and sea lions were amazing for all ages. It's also definitely worth the cost for their professional pictures, and we had... More

We booked online ahead of time and requested a 10:00 am slot for 6 people. I paid and received a confirmation email that reads 10:00 am. Later I received another email confirmation that I did not read as carefully because it looked so much like the first one. So the night before we arrive by ship in Cozumel, I was... More

My daughter and I had an incredible time with the manatees. It was just the two of us and three manatees. I would recommend booking the earliest time possible for the manatees. There will probably be fewer in the group that way. The way the park seems to work is you book a session for the dolphins. Then when you... More

My 10 year old and I had a wonderful time getting to interact with dolphins. We just did the dolphin encounter. We learned some hand signals to interact with the dolphins. The process to get in our groups was a little confusing and awkward. But once we got started it was a blast. A bonus we got to go in... More

We booked our trip to Dolphin Discovery Cozumel through our cruise line. It was an amazing trip. The water is beautiful and our guide Fernando was excellent! We did the dolphin encounter with lunch and beach break, we were able to interact with the dolphin. The only thing is that you will not be able to use a camera in... More

Monday, March 13th. My family of five first arrived an hour early for our 10am reservations. When we checked in, we confirmed with the lady that we had 10am reservations to swim with the manatees and 1pm reservations to swim with dolphins. She tried telling us that they moved our dolphin reservations to 3pm (without even telling us). This definitely... More
