Default Dolphin encounter - Cozumel

Has anyone done it? It says you can get your photo taken with a dolphin. Do they allow you in the water, or are you on the platform with a dolphin in the air in front of you?

The platform you are standing on is in waste deep water. You can kiss the dolphin, pet the dolphin, and shake it's fin while it stands in front of you. They take a picture of you kissing it, and for $30 you can purchase a video of the entire encounter. My family and I booked this directly through dolphin discovery. We all loved it.

The cab ride I think was $10 and it was only a short ride to Chankanaab National Park - maybe 5-10 minutes if i remember correctly..........

Debv - you need to make reservations, it sells outs very fast. They have a web site i believe, i don't know it off hand.

Would do the other experience where you actually get in the water with the dolphins - - hold their fins and they pull you and you also lay on your stomach and they push you from under your feet so you are standing in the water. $129/person. There are several different experiences. All on their website -- Dolphin Discovery, Cozumel.

My wife and son did it 3 weeks ago.
