Has anyone done the Dolphin Roayl Swim at Chankanaab? If so, was it worth the money? And did you get to the park by cab??
Thanks for your help.

I believe Penny has done the Dolphin Swim. She'll be able to answer your question, I believe.
The taxis run continuously to the Park and back to the port all day. No need to worry about that.
It's a beautiful spot. You'll love Chankanaab.

I did the dolphin encounter there last month. It was a lot of fun. Others in the group the swim said it was a blast!

I have pictures from the encounter on my website.

There ya' go, dbug.

Larry, great photos. Did you use the underwater housing at stingray city? Those photos are phenomenal.

We did the swim with the dolphins pre-hurricane, it was the most awesome experience I've ever had. Make sure you do the swim and not the encounter. You get to be in the water and interact with the dolphins on the swim. It was absolutely incredible. We bought the video and when I'm really needing a pick me up, I play it. To me it was absolutely worth every penny (no pun intended), I will never forget the experience. Best wishes and have a wonderful time!!

Thanks for your help Larry the pics are great...actually trying to find out information for my neices honeymoon. We are going to Paradise Beach when we go to Cozumel..I have my eye on the parasailing. She and her soon to be groom want to do the dolphin swim...not just the encounter.

I used an Olympus underwater camera. Really cool digital that is waterproof down to 33 feet.

I think you're right Penny, the little extra to actually get to do tge swim would have been worth it.

Next time...

Larry, thanks. I'm writing the name of that camera down so I remember it for our next trip. The clarity on your shots is amazing.
