Rating: 9

Certified divers enjoy two dives—first to Palancar Reef (70–80 ft. or 21–24 m.) and then to a shallower dive (50–60 ft. or 15–18 m.). Includes most equipment (wetsuits extra) and bottled water. Divers must have a valid certification and have completed at least one dive in the past two years. Junior Open Water Divers (ages 12-14) have additional restrictions. Typical meeting time is 9:45 am. Cruiser reviews are positive: Two “drift dives” offer the opportunity to see more “unique underwater life” than in many other ports. Palancar Reef is “phenomenal” and the reef wall is “very deep” with “lots to see.” Visibility is “incredible.” (On Your Own: Eagle Ray Divers, http://www.eagleraydivers.com, 866-465-1616)

 Dolphin Discovery Cozumel   [CZ04]

Rating: 7

This popular excursion takes you to Chankanaab National Park, where you’ll encounter dolphins in waist-deep water. Afterward, stay and enjoy the park. If you want to swim with the dolphins, book CZ50, xxxx. Cruisers ages 3-12 must be accompanied by an adult booked on the same excursion. Ages 13-17 must be accompanied by an adult on this excursion or the corresponding observer excursion (CZ25, 3236). Cruiser comments were mixed: Listen to a “brief training session,” don “bulky life jackets,” then enter one of five “water areas” where you stand in the water. Several cruisers report that the “waist-high” water was in fact “chest-high” or even “chin-high” instead, and that it could be over the heads of guests under 7. Most cruisers loved being able to “touch and interact” with the “amazing” dolphins. Cruisers note that you cannot wear “water shoes.” Some feel this excursion isn’t really great for cruisers “under 12” due to the depth of the water.

Rating: 6

This excursion is for those with friends or family on a Dolphin Discovery Cozumel excursion who wish to observe and not interact with the dolphins. While your friend or family member is getting their orientation and interaction, you’ll be observing from an unshaded area about 100 feet away. Also note that the taxi ride to and from the facility is in a non-air-conditioned vehicle. Observers may stay to enjoy the park, which includes a beach, sea lion show, pool, and archeological exhibits.

 Mayan Frontier Horseback Riding Tour   [CZ05]

Rating: 5

Giddyup! Mosey on down a Mayan trail on horseback, passing ruins on your way. Afterward, visit a ranch and swim, if you want. Must wear closed toe shoes and long pants. 90-minute trail ride, maximum weight is 240 lbs. Cruiser reviews were mediocre: The “very friendly staff” are “helpful,” but the “saddles are old and unpadded.” The horses are also “over the hill” (which could be a good thing as they are more sedate than younger horses). Cruisers also note that some of the “ruins and artifacts” are “not real.” Younger guests “enjoyed it,” but most cruisers were “not impressed.”
