Dolphin Encounter in Cancun, Isla Mujeres


An all-ages-friendly program: learn and have fun!

 Cancun is waiting for you with the most paradisiacal beaches in the world! Are you planning to spend your next vacation here and have a great experience? Then you need to swim with dolphins in Isla Mujeres, one of the preferred activities among Cancun visitors.

We created the Dolphin Encounter program for people of all ages. Dolphin Discovery-Isla Mujeres is located just 20 minutes away by ferry in Isla Mujeres, an island with one of the most beautiful landscapes of the Caribbean Sea.

The incredible part about this program is that you’ll actually swim with the most adorable marine animals in their natural habitat of the Caribbean! You don’t need to be a professional swimmer to get the best dolphin experience, you’ll be standing at all times on an underwater platform where our beloved dolphins will give you a lovely kiss, and both a wet, yet warm hug and handshake.

Dolphins are always excited to play with our visitors and to share their amazing skills and friendly company. While standing on the underwater platform, our marine mammal specialists will teach you some interesting facts about dolphins, their diet, and reproductive and nursing programs we procure for our species, as well as special tips to protect our environment.

Enjoy the rest of the day in our two amazing pools, or relax by taking a sunbath. Savor a delicious buffet and get refreshing beverages from the national open bar in the company of your family and friends. Don’t hesitate! If you want to have a blast with your loved ones, Dolphin Discovery-Isla Mujeres is the best option for you!

Come and have the experience of a lifetime!
