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!

We just gave in to buy photos from this business and got taken to the cleaners. I don't mind paying for photos, however I do mind paying $500 for all our photos and video. The ULTIMATE PACKAGE($350), but fine print states up to 6. We had 12 in our group and they originally were trying to charge us $700 because... More

This is a cattle call excursion. We went with a Carnival Cruise excursion. From walking in a line with a hundred people to the taxis and waiting...then waiting at Dolphinaris to be taken to the prep area...then waiting to get a life jacket...then waiting to be called to your pool area. By the time we got to the dolphin part,... More

What an amazing view right by the ocean! Seemed to be a very clean and safe place for the Dolphins. Most complaints on here are about the fact you can't take any pictures from personal cameras. Lots of people were taking pictures anyway from the balcony... Honestly as much as it costs to experience this dolphin excursion you should be... More

We visited as a shore excursion in our Disney Magic Cruise. Expensive but fun way to interact with dolphins. Also included lunch and free drinks all day. How to make it educational: read a book about dolphins, research dolphins on the internet before going.

This excursion was so cool! We did the dolphin encounter with unlimited food and drink. It was so neat to get in the water while the trainer brings the dolphin by so you can pet her or giver her commands. I was on the end, so I often had the other dolphin right there so I could pet her. I... More

Dolphinarus is far too expensive. You are not told upfront that once you have paid admission, there is no opportunity to take your own photos of your Dolphin Encounter experience; they go to great lengths to prevent guests from getting anywhere near the Dolphins with anything that is or might be a camera. During the dolphin encounter, guests are continuously... More

Worth the $$!! We have never been swimming with dolphins and are so pleased with this excursion. The pictures were pricey but worth it. We had a group of 10, and the unlimited food and drinks were an amazing perk. Kids and parents were equally happy. The trainers / employees take amazing care of the dolphins and I would love...
