Manatee Encounter at Cozumel

Duration: · Departs: 3 Times Daily

On this fantastic activity in Chankanaab National Marine Preserve on Cozumel Island, you will have the good fortune of encountering the gentle marine mammals known as manatees. You’ll learn all about these creatures’ migration patterns, diet, social organization, biology, child rearing, habitat, and more on this tour. You will enter the manatees’ seaside habitat to swim beside these large and languid creatures.

The manatee, for thousands of years, was a legendary mythological creature that was revered by coastal dwellers and seafarers who often mistook these animals for mermaids. When you get a closer look at these bewhiskered creatures, you would never mistake them for beautiful women. These large aquatic mammals are inquisitive and genial animals that often can be found along the coasts of tropical and sub-tropical areas grazing on vegetation. These sea cows earned their nickname because of their large size, vegetarian diet, and casual attitude. These animal needs to consume quite a lot of vegetation in order to feed their huge bodies that can grow to thirteen feet in length and thirteen hundred pounds in weight.

You’ll have a chance to interact with the manatees from a shallow water platform where you can feed, pet, and hug these gentle behemoths. You can even receive a kiss form their bewhiskered lips. Manatees have a prehensile snout similar to that of an elephant, a closely related animal species. These placid giants are always ready for you to feed them a snack of vegetation or a scratch on their chin whiskers.

The price of the Manatee Encounter in Cozumel also includes entrance to Chankanaab Park.
