Did you know that manatees are as lovely and friendly as they are large? Meet, play and swim with sea cows off the coast of Cozumel Island. An unforgettable experience!
Swimming with manatees: what to expect?
On the west coast of the Mexican island of Cozumel, you'll find yourself at Chankanaab Beach Park, the ideal natural space to enjoy an encounter with one of the most curious creatures in the ocean: manatees! Before you take the plunge into the sparkling waters of the Caribbean Sea, you'll first have a brief lesson about the animals, learning the best way to swim with them safely, as well as fascinating facts about them.
Then, you'll make your way over to the area where the manatees live, where you'll be able to meet them and play with them safely and comfortably for you and them. You'll soon discover why they're also known as sea cows as you watch them slowly and peacefully swim around. The enormous animals, which can weigh up to 1,300 lb (590 kg), are super friendly and you'll be able to get up close to them! A truly unique encounter.
You'll even have the opportunity to feed them the algae and other sea vegetation that they like to eat, while you watch them move about in the crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean.
