What people are saying about Chankanaab Park

This was by far our FAVORITE excursion on our cruise. For starters, it's an easy 5-minute taxi ride from the Ship Pier. And since we had purchased our tickets online (you will save a lot doing that in advance), we breezed into the complex and were shown the lunch hut, the snorkel building, and the shaded beach chairs. We loved everything about this place! The included lunch was awesome and the snorkeling was terrific. The water is clear and clean and warm and the white sand is beautiful. We pretty much stayed on the beach/swimming side all day, but there's another side too -- a pool and a marine park with dolphin and sea lion shows. You can't go wrong booking this excursion! Be sure to buy the one that includes lunch and snorkeling! The park closes at 4 pm, which worked out well for us since we had to be back at the Ship by 4.30 pm, but we wished we could have stayed far longer.

It was a really good experience. As my first time, I had all the instructions needed and a very patient instructor. Sergio was always with me, keeping me calm and relaxed cause in the beginning I was so nervous, but he know how to do his job and it was amazing the scuba. Also the park is very good and we can enjoy all they long there including snorkel and sea lions show.

Wonderful encounter with the manatee, so moving that tears welled up and at that moment the dolphins came towards me as if to share the emotion. Also, the nanny of the 6 babies is a great person who speaks French and gave us so much exciting information. A big thank you to her and thank you Edgar for sharing

Sergio was amazing. As a first timer, he was very attentive and gave such clear instructions that were easy to follow. The photographer took awesome photos and videos that was worth every penny. I packed a lot into my trip otherwise would totally do another dive with them!

Enrique was very patient and thorough in training my girls scuba diving. William clicked great photos. It was a wonderful experience.
