The park offers the experience of interacting with 3 different marine mammals in one place: dolphins, manatees and sea lions. Been that Cozumel is the main cruiship port in Mexico, the cruise passengers are the main visitors, as the tour is available as a day trip on the island. Some of the cruise companies that prefer Dolphin Discovery Cozumel are: Princess Cruises, Royal Caribbean Carnival, Costa Cruises, among others.

The park has grown in terms of attractions and services through the years; here are some of the most important events in its history:

1997    Opening with only 4 dolphins.

2001    Addition of the sea lions habitat and educational presentations for all the visitors.

2005    Complete renovation and re-opening due to the impact of hurricane Wilma.

In the coming days, will be the venue for the opening dinner of the "22nd Annual Florida-Caribbean Cruise Association Conference & Tradeshow" to be held in Cozumel, with an attendance of 1,000 people among travel agents and exhibitors.

"The strategic location of the dolphinarium helps us attract more visitors. It is important to note that we offer support programs for local people in order to make the interaction with dolphins accessible to everybody (certified as a Social Responsible Company for 10 consecutive years). In addition, our excellent relationship with cruise companies, allows us to know the specific needs of our visitors and innovate with attractions and facilities as in this case, the palapas on the docks" said Didier Canto, Dolphin Discovery Cozumel GM.
