Dolphinaris Cozumel has a privileged location within the pristine waters of the Mexican Caribbean's heart; you will be able to enjoy a magical dolphin swimming with a tailor made ALL-INCLUSIVE service.

The architecture of this dolphinarium is inspired in a fishermen village and has a design that, aside of being one of the most beautiful around the world, provides an ample home for dolphins where they can spaciously unwind during their dolphin encounter with our visitors.

Visit us and experience the thrill of being propelled by a dolphin on top of the water surface and observe how they communicate; have magical moments in one of the most beautiful natural locations that only the Mexican Caribbean can offer!

Swim with dolphins and enjoy in Dolphinaris Cozumel this lifetime experience that you can share with family and friends!

Booked through the cruise ship so we paid a bit more than normal maybe but it was totally worth it. Only about a 5 minute taxi ride from the port (but all was included in our price). Beautiful place and very well organized. We chose the swim package but there was also an "encounter" package which you did not swim... More

My wife and I booked this Port Adventure through Disney Cruise Line and it was the highlight of all the excursions we've been on. The location in Cozumel was a short taxi ride (about 4 blocks, less than 5 minutes) from the Port. The taxi fare was included in the price of the excursion. When we arrived we were greeted... More

The dolphin was great! Food was very good at the Mexican buffet. Don't bother paying to rent a locker. (I think we paid $14 US) They don't tell you in advance that there is a box for your valuables right beside whichever pool you will be in for your dolphin encounter.

We took this excursion because it was All Inclusive. We have always wanted to interact with dolphins and for the price this cannot be beat! It included a dolphin encounter, full lunch buffet and alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverages. There are bathrooms, showers and lockers. There is no beach - that was a bummer. But there was an area to snorkel... More

I've been here when I went to Cozumel on a cruise. My family paid for this excursion and it was great. They told us not to bring anything because you had to pay for lockers if you wanted/needed one but when we got there we were able to put our belongings in a little cubby underneath a seating area.

My husband and I went to Dolphinaris, I knew it would be amazing but the whole experience was unbelievable. Everyone was so patient and took time to answer questions. We spent a lot of time with the dolphins. A once in a lifetime experience! Worth the money!

We got to experience the dolphin excursion through Carnival Cruise and it was amazing. We got to swim with the dolphins, the group was pretty small therefore we each got a good amount of time with the dolphins. We also got to use the paddle boards, the snorkeling gear and kayaks!! The tour included transportation so when we were ready... More

The good. Being in the water with these magnificent creatures was unbelievable. They appear well looked after at this venue and the trainers are knowledgeable and caring. Free bar and buffet.

I've always wanted to do this and it was 100% worth it! Definitely one of the best experiences in my life. You get to interact with the Dolphins with hugs, kisses, and you get to swim with them too. We also went snorkeling and there were so many pretty fish in the water. I would absolutely recommend this to everyone.... More
