Dolphins - The Royal Swim At Chankanaab

The incredible Royal Swim with foot push and Chankanaab National Marine Park, makes for a perfect day in Cozumel.

Dolphin Royal Swim in Cozumel

Chankanaab National Marine Park is the perfect setting for your swimming with dolphins in the Caribbean. The park offers incredible snorkeling, diving, restaurants, and a beautiful beach, in addition to an unforgettable Royal Swim with dolphins.

This exciting program really gets you up close and personal with these friendly marine mammals. You will start with a briefing about the dolphins and an explanation of the activities you will experience. You will then enter the water on a submerged platform from which you will be able to interact with the dolphins, including the very popular dolphin kiss photo.

From the platform, you will proceed into deeper water (life jackets required) for a speedy dorsal tow ride through the water, holding tightly onto their fins. Next is what most guests consider the highlight of their time with the dolphins - the foot push. You will be propelled through the water by the dolphins as they push you on the bottoms of your feet!

Each session is one hour, with 30 minutes of swim time. Group size is limited to 10 people to ensure that you have a very personal experience. Professional photographers will capture these magical moments for you on video and photo.(available for purchase)

Please Note: The park admission is included in your dolphin tour. Guests in your party who will not be participating in the dolphin activity (including children under 8 years old who are unable to participate in this activity) should book the "An Adventure in Chankanaab" tour in order to enter the park. Guests can arrive at any time and make use of the facilities at the park. Your swim with dolphins in Cozumel begins at the time on your ticket. Transportation to and from the park is not included, so you can come and go when you please.

About Shore Excursions Group
ABOUT US
Shore Excursions Group was created with one goal in mind: to provide exceptional travel experiences to cruise passengers in the ports they visit around the world. To accomplish this, we have compiled an exceptional array of tours delivered by local experts with decades of experience serving travelers and delivering excellent tours. Our owners and management team are comprised of seasoned travel industry executives who leverage their considerable experience to deliver memories of a lifetime.

We are experts in providing exceptional shore excursions. We understand that in today's fast paced world, vacations have become an increasingly important way to relax, reconnect with family and friends, and experience new and interesting places. With this in mind, we provide the highest quality tours by performing extensive research, and detailed reviews. While other companies also offer excursions, we strongly believe our expertise and approach set us apart. The large cruise lines sell shore excursions - typically in very large groups visiting high traffic sites. We focus on smaller groups visiting more interesting and authentic locations using more personalized local operators. While the cruise lines are experts in delivering cruises, we are experts in delivering shore excursions.

Our Approach
We believe quality service is not only highly valued by customers, but ultimately leads to better experiences and higher satisfaction. Unlike the cruise lines and other tour companies that rely almost entirely on websites, we encourage customers to call us. We want to invest our time answering your questions, providing input, and selecting the excursions that best meet your needs.

Our Tours
Our goal is to provide customers a wide array of exciting, appealing, and enriching tours. For those customers who prefer to travel in smaller groups with more personalized service, we offer a wide variety of small group tours around the world. These tours generally range in size from 2-12 people compared to larger tours which can number up to 50 people. While exploring the destinations and ports on this website, feel free to search for these "Small Group Tours". For those customers interested in private tours, we offer many outstanding excursions that allow you to travel with your party alone and, in many cases, to fully customize your tour. Search for "Private Tours" if you are interested in this experience. Our "Scenic" tours provide up close and personal access to some of the most spectacular natural environments on Earth from majestic glaciers in Alaska to spectacular reefs in the Caribbean. Our "Cultural" tours allow customers to experience local customs, entertainment and culinary delights ranging from tribal dances in Alaska to an outstanding local meal in Santorini, Greece. Our "Active" tours offer a multitude of exciting and adventurous ways to experience our destinations. Our customers can kayak the turquoise waters of the Caribbean, hike to a spectacular waterfall in Hawaii, or bicycle through quaint villages in France. Our "City" tours allow travelers to see the highlights of great cities around the world with unique insights provided by our expert tour guides.

Our People
In our experience, exceptional travel experiences are almost always delivered by exceptional people. With that in mind, we utilize a comprehensive approach to select and employ the leading tour guides and tour providers around the globe. We hold our people to very high standards which we measure by our comprehensive Quality Control process and, most importantly, by our customer feedback, which we will actively seek from each of our customers.
