Cozumel is the largest inhabited island in Mexico, which lies just off the mainland. The coasts are known for large, breaking surf on the east side, and calmer waters for diving on the west side. In 1959, Jacques Cousteau discovered the beauty of Palancar, the coral reefs at the south of Cozumel and publicized it as one of the best places to go scuba diving in the world. Diving is still Cozumel's primary draw, mainly due to the healthy coral reef marine communities.

  • Dolphin True Adventure

    Get closer to dolphins than ever before…

    Are you ready to discover the magic of a dolphin connection? During your day on Cozumel, we’ll show you how to communicate one-on-one with these awe-inspiring marine animals in a way that’s sure to open your mind and warm your heart. Starting with a virtual reality experience followed by a 40-minute swim, Dolphin Tru Connection places you in direct contact with the dolphins, giving you the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hear them communicate via sonar and feel their heartbeat at your fingertips.

    Your experience begins with a refreshing natural drink as your Seaguard guide welcomes you to Dolphinaris. Each of our Seaguards is a highly-trained expert on issues relating to dolphins and the oceans, making them the ideal guide on this journey of discovery. The Seaguard will then take you to the terrace, where you will receive your towels and locker keys. After a brief orientation, follow your Seaguard to the upper level for a virtual reality experience where you’ll embark on an ocean voyage and explore the depths of the sea alongside a dolphin friend.

    Once your virtual reality tour comes to a close, Seaguards will guide you to the dolphin habitat as your 40-minute swim begins in the deeper waters of our lagoons, the best place to fully immerse yourself in the dolphins’ environment and establish a lasting bond with these majestic creatures as they swim freely. Meanwhile, the trainer will give you insight into how dolphins communicate and behave.

    Next is something that will truly blow you away: communicating with the dolphins in their own personalized way! Put on your dark-lens goggles and float face-up in the water. With your ears submerged, you’ll be able to hear first-hand how the dolphins talk underwater via sonar… an experience you won’t find above the surface! Afterwards, you can deepen your bond by placing your hand over the dolphin’s heart to feel its heartbeat, giving you an even more profound understanding of how humans and animals are so closely connected.

    You and the dolphin will get to complete your connection near the end of the experience, when you’ll get face-to-face for an unforgettable dolphin kiss as the dolphin says goodbye to you in its own personal way. Finally, the dolphin will dive down to a treasure chest at the bottom of the lagoon and bring you a special gift: a dolphin fin charm made out of recycled materials.

    Once the experience is completed, head to the terrace area, where you’ll strengthen your dolphin bond by making a pledge to care for the ocean environment, stamping your fingerprint onto your dolphin fin charm as a promise. Dolphinaris joins you in this commitment, and will strive to protect the oceans alongside you in spirit once you’ve returned home.

    After you’ve enjoyed a flavorful lunch, where you’ll have the chance to see all of your candid photos and videos presented to you on a tablet, you can spend the rest of your time indulging in the rest of the amenities found among the calm ocean coves of Dolphinaris Cozumel: access to the Exclusive Lounge with a private infinity pool plus included food and drinks, a swim in the snorkeling aquarium with tropical fish and other surprising sea creatures, and activities like paddle boarding and kayaking on the Caribbean Sea.

  • Cozumel By Jeep & Snorkel

    Explore Cozumel by Jeep and enjoy the scenery on the way to the beach to snorkel and boogie board, followed by an enlightening tour of a tequila factory.

    Depart from the pier in an open-top, manual transmission Jeep, an ideal vehicle to capture panoramic views of the island, which is steeped in history. Although the Maya lived on Cozumel, there are few reminders of their civilization; the closest being the stone arch of a temple at El Cedral. Cozumel is now known more for its beaches and snorkeling, and you'll have the opportunity to explore its underwater world at one of the island's most beautiful stretches of sand.

    While snorkeling over the coral reefs, you may observe stingrays, sea turtles and countless tropical fish in the crystal-clear waters. You might even see the vibrant blue-and-yellow queen angelfish, a shy species that feeds on sponges. You'll also have the chance to boogie board at a neighboring beach where the waves are more pronounced.

    Then, it's on to a tequila hacienda to learn how Mexico's national drink is made from mature agave plants that are 8 to 10 years old. It takes approximately 17 pounds of agave hearts to produce a gallon of tequila through a process of steaming, pulping and fermenting.

    Later, on the way to lunch at a local beach club, you'll stop for photos at the Two Cultures Monument, which commemorates the merging of the early Spanish and Mayan cultures. Following a tasty Mexican lunch, you'll drive directly back to the pier.
