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!

The dolphin encounter was truly amazing, and the highlight of our cruise! However, this place was a money grab. The lockers were outrageously expensive ($14 USD/ locker). They didn't allow any cameras, (cellphone or real camera), or any video recording devices because they did all of the videos and photography. The photos and videos that are later available are ridiculously... More

This is my second dolphin encounter in Cozumel. I previously gave an "excellent" review to Chankanaab Park in January 2012. Both have dolphins and snorkeling. Chankanaab may have more variety of things to do, but the facilities and free food and drink at Dolphinaris give it a slight edge. Our dolphin was Nautica and her trainer(whose name I forget) was...

Being able to swim with dolphins was cool. Being in the water with them, touching them being able to be up close and personal was neat. Kids loved it. We booked the VIP package, that was the best choice... Lunch, drinks, towel and locker were provided along with snorkeling or kayaking. The pictures were a bit pricey. $200 for all... More

I booked this through Carnival cruise lines and what an amazing experience. We had our own pool, butler, bartender and waitress! We did not have to deal with any long lines or lots of people. Aside from my mom and I, there was a family of 5 with us on this excursion. It was very relaxing and swimming with the... More

This place seemed well run, was very clean and organised. The staff were fairly helpful, and the dolphin trainer who was in the pool with my family was awesome and made my kids feel very relaxed in the pool. Normally groups are up to about eight people, but it was only our family so was nice and personal. Plenty of... More

So my wife and I did not know what quite to expect from this. Both of us are very out going and adventurous but this had us a little nervous. But we both had a blast the dolphins were well trained and the staff we very knowledgeable.We will be recommending this to another person as a trip to check out.

My husband and I decided to try the swimming with dolphins and it didn't disappoint. The staff was friendly and the dolphins were fun. We would definitely do it again but with our kids so they can have the same experience.
