It was fabulous! The manatees were friendly and it was a laid back, gentle experience that was thrilling. My mom and I were the only nes there, so it was unique and intimate. Loved feeding all 4 of the manatees at the same time. It was an experience of a lifetime!
The experience was excellent. The kids said that it was more fun than the dolphin experience. You get one on one time to cuddle and the feed the manatees. Don't pay for the buffet that they offer. The food is horrible and a huge waste of money.

Five stars because swimming with manatees is an unique opportunity.
Not five stars because the photos are very expensive similar price to dolphin swim at Cabo Dolphins and one has to look through them while still in bathing suits right after the encounter.
We spent the time in the pool with pool bar at Chankanaab prior to the manatee encounter. Lockers are free. Showers and changing rooms available.
This was fun, in the water handling and feeding manatees. Go early to beat the crowds. Pictures are taken throughout, the cost of the pics is outrageous , it's a soft sell. Lockers are provided at no charge, you can shower and change, bring soap and towel. Added benefit is everything else going on at the park. Pict
Wonderful experience! Staff was professional and knowledgeable, but fun! Loved the manatees - I was surprised that they were so interactive. Everyone in my group 4 was able to have one-on-one time with two manatees Edgar and baby Lorenzo. The facilities at Chankanaab were clean and organized. Will definitely recommend it to my family/friends.
Incredible! Loved swimming with the manatees. Would suggest anyone doing it. Such gentle giants.
Great value and well organized facility. Photos were pricey though.
The manatees are the best. The gal who was the trainer while we were there answered our questions about manatees. She was a lot of fun during the time she was working with us and helping us with the manatees. We were able to swim and play with the manatees. They are so lovable. This was the highlight of our day.
Best experience every. The manatee's were so sweet and fun to swim around with. Can't wait until I can do it again.
The Manatee encounter was wonderful but the pictures were over priced.
I have a home in Florida and see Manatees quite often in coastal waters...but I have NEVER had the JOY and EXCITEMENT of interacting with them like I did in Cozumel. This activity is awesome...lots of time in the water interacting with 5 Manatees...Feeding them heads of lettuce...and posing for a variety of photos. This encounter is OUTSTANDING! Also, the Beach Park is beautiful and a perfect location to snorkel and enjoy the SUN.
It was an amazing experience with our two granddaughters, 22 yrs and 15 yrs. We recommend it to all of our friends and family. The Manatee's are so gentle and wonderful. My granddaughters loved the babies and they swam with us and gave so many hugs and kisses. Will definitely be on our list of things to do again.
Our family of 4 went on the manatee tour and it was fantastic. The pictures are a scam. Can and #39;t take your own and everywhere I read prior to going was 70 USD for their pics. Well to find out it is 70 person. So they wanted 280 for our family. I haggled down to 200 but everyone beware!
It was awesome! We booked for the 2:00 encounter and had the pool to ourselves! We each fed 3 giant manatees about 4 heads of lettuce, rubbed their bellies and hugged them. The only downside is they didn and #39;t allow any photo/video so we couldn and #39;t use our GoPro.
Great Experience with the Manatees! Disappointed with Photo options. Photos are way overpriced at 40 for one photo or 70 for all photos on a cd. They will not let you take any of your own pictures.
The manatees were very friendly and loved to eat the lettuce. It was an awesome experience. The only complaint is. The the pictures were VERY highly priced. They were trying to charge more for a cd with pictures, than we paid for the whole excursion.
Good experience with lots of close up time with the manatees. Photos are not allowed at the holding area you need to stand 60-80 yds away without a clear view. Photos taken by the staff and are 70 for the CD. They are very nice quality, though.
The guides were good, tge experience was great but what blew it for me is how they tried to scam us on the prices of the photos. They haggled with some and not with others. Iwould have loved to buy pictures but 140 for a CD or 100 for a single photo with 2 people in it? They also made you walk in and look at the pics right aftet getting out of the water. I would have preferred to dry off first. Finally, they have a buffet in their restaurant but it was nasty.
WAS A GREAT EXPERIENCE WITH THE MANATEES. WE COULD NOT TAKE PHOTOS ON OUR OWN, AS THEY CHARGE YOU A LOT OF MONEY FOR ONE PICTURE. 40.00 FOR ONE 5X8 PHOTOGRAPH. THEY TRIED TO CHARGE US 700.00 US DOLLARS FOR ALL OF THE PICTURES OF OUR PARTY OF 8. BUYER BEWARE OF THE CHARGES FOR PHOTOS. YOU CAN BARGAIN WITH THEM FOR SOME OF THE PICTURES.
I must, first, say that the experience with the manatee was absolutely amazing! I would pay to have that experience over and over. But the park, itself is boring. i was angry at the prices they charge for pictures of your experience. $480? Are you serious? Robbery!
Fun to see these beautiful creatures, but still animals shouldn't be locked up.
