Full description

Experience Cozumel memorably with direct contact with the cute, chubby marine mammals known as manatees. At Dolphin Discovery-Cozumel, interact with and even feed these lively creatures. Go snorkeling while you're at it, and enjoy included access to Chankanaab Park.

With the Manatee Encounter program, listen as your instructor gives a short briefing on how to play with the sea mammals. Get happy as the manatee swims by you so you can touch and pet it. Fear not, as the manatees are very gentle. Then move in for a close-up as it gives you a big, charming hug. Bond with your new pal as you even get to feed him. For yet more fun, visit Chankanaab Park, where you can admire the local flora and fauna and take advantage of the top-notch facilities to relax.

It was ok, only problem no phones or cameras are allowed. They ask you to pay $65usd per person for the photo and you can't do family photos. So for the family of 4 it will be $260usd!!!
