Default Different Dolphin Encounters in Cozumel

Costa is offering 2 different dolphin encounters in Cozumel:

THE DOLPHIN SWIM AND SNORKEL ADVENTURE
- and -
THE DOLPHIN TOUCH ENCOUNTER

The shore excursion details aren't very, well, detailed! Can anyone tell me what the difference is? In addition, has anyone done a dolphin encounter with a local operator and how was that?

There's only the ONE spot in Cozumel that offers dolphin experiences.

I'd DEFINITELY chose the dolphin SWIM over the Encounter.

On the swim you get into the water with them, and their handlers have them do tricks and interact with you.

In the encounter you basically get to watch them, then they swim buy and you get to pet them. This one is not worth the money!

I definitely agree, the swim is much more valuable than the encounter, be sure to chose the swim also if it is a little more expensive. The local operator will be the same that is offering this activity to the cruise lines, same service and content (and dolphins, jeje). Good luck!
