MANATEE ENCOUNTER - COZUMEL

COZUMEL MEXICO

Only 10 minutes from downtown Cozumel at famous Chankanaab National Park, this is the perfect backdrop for your manatee experience. The park offers incredible snorkeling, diving, restaurants, and a beautiful beach.

This tour includes:
• Up-close experience with manatees, including hugs, kisses, and feeding
• Chankannab National Park entrance fee
• Use of pool, lockers, showers, restrooms
• An amazing opportunity!

Join us for the ultimate marine mammal experience as you embark on the only swim with manatees program in the Caribbean.

During this one-of-a-kind adventure, you'll meet and interact with these gentle giants, some weighing as much as 1,300 pounds.

Following a 15-minute briefing about manatees and an explanation of the activities you'll experience, you'll enter the water on a submerged platform from which you'll be able to share a kiss and a hug, and even participate in feeding two of these fascinating creatures.

Each session lasts for 30 minutes, with 15 minutes in the water. Group size is limited to 10 people to ensure that you have a very personal experience. A professional photographer will be on hand to capture the smile on your face!

Spend the rest of your day exploring Chankanaab National Park, a conservation area for flora and fauna that features a beautiful beach and opportunities for admiring tropical fish, colorful reefs, and underwater sculptures. You can also enjoy a fresh handmade tortilla or relax with a massage in front of the lagoon that gives the park its name. What a great way to spend a day!
