Cozumel's only certified Dolphin Park! Don't miss the opportunity to visit and get dazzled by Cozumel's most recommended attraction, full of adventure and fun for the whole Day!

Adventure begins when you are whisked from the pier to the inviting palapa entrance at Chankanaab Park. A stroll past shimmering fountains and waterfall lead to Dolphin Discovery Cozumel - the world’s largest dolphinarium—set against the big blue Caribbean Sea. An informative presentation by our Dolphin trainers prepares you for the fun to come in your Dolphin Push, Pull & Swim with Buffet & National Beach Park shore excursion.

It’s time to meet your Dolphin! Everyone in your group is outfitted with a life vest and stands on a submerged platform in waist-deep water. Get to know your Dolphin friend with an educational session as your certified trainers share the anatomy and physiology of these amazing marine mammals. 

The world famous Dolphin Kiss is next and then out into the deeper waters of the Caribbean Sea for the Push – ride a Boogie Board as your powerful Dolphin pushes you across the surface; the Pull as your Dolphin flips belly side up for the Belly Ride and pulls you across the surface of the water with her two pectoral fins and the Swim as you will have free time to play with the Dolphin as you sing with your Dolphin, splash around in the beautiful Caribbean Sea and get up close and personal in exciting activities one on one with your new friend.

From the Dolphin Discovery area, head to the Sea Lion Show, included for Carnival guests, where you and other Carnival Cruise guests laugh out loud as you watch the hilarious antics of the three resident sea lions. Born entertainers, the sea lions “sing,” dance and leap with joy during the 20-minute show.

Your time is then free to explore the wonders of Chankanaab Park, a lush conservation area that is Cozumel’s most popular attraction. Bring your gear, or rent on-site, as snorkeling at the colorful reef and protected areas is available in the Park, or even walking around the park you will discover what Chankanaab has to offer, as you become witness to the many cultures of Mexico in the archeological replica area, paths in the jungle at every turn with Mayan replicas and other ancient Mexican cultures including a real Mayan village, also you will have many photo opportunities at Chankanaab Lagoon a real natural aquarium, filled with tropical fish.

Stroll the park’s colorful botanical gardens and Tequila Village or take a cool dip in the pool.  Your magical day at the National Park ends with the short taxi ride back to the cruise pier.
