COZUMEL MANATEE DISCOVERY

MANATEE ENCOUNTER

One of the strangest creatures in the sea has to be the manatee. Called "Mermaids of the Sea" by early explorers, manatees are also known as sea cows for their slow movements, large size (up to 13 feet long and 1300 lbs!) and grazing on sea grass. Manatees are rarely seen in the wild, and are an endangered species. However, with our Manatee Encounter, you'll have an opportunity to get up close and personal with our manatees and interact with them in the water.

Manatee Encounter Highlights

Free entrance to famous Chankanaab Park, where you can enjoy the beach and snorkeling before and/or after your dolphin swim (park hours 9AM - 5PM).

Feed the manatees, get a kiss and a hug, and feel their special skin!

After the swim, purchase a keepsake photo of you with your manatee, or a video of your actual manatee experience to remember forever!
