cancellation policy

These tickets can't be cancelled or rescheduled.

Discover the Caribbean charm of Cozumel with its crystal-clear waters, powdery white beaches, and warm weather. Sign up for a program at Dolphin Discovery in Cozumel and swim with sea lions! These energetic creatures are often loved for the joy they bring to people. They ride the surf, chase each other, push and shove each other off rocks, and practice territorial battles. With the Sea Lion Discovery program, you’ll not only interact with them but also get in close quarters. Be in awe as they jump out of the water to impress you. You’ll definitely be charmed when you hear them sing and dance.

The fun doesn’t end there! The program also includes free admission to Chankanaab Park, which is Mayan for “Small Ocean.” This adventure beach park is dedicated to the preservation of nature and the entertainment of people. Here you will enjoy the raw beauty of nature while snorkeling in the mild and shallow waters of Chankanaab Reef which is surrounded by luscious tropical gardens and trails.
