Visit the Chankanaab Beach Adventure Park for a one tank dive and then stay to enjoy the facilities at your leisure!
Chankanaab is located just a short taxi ride away from your Cozumel cruise terminal. Once you arrive your entrance fee is also included in this excursion cost. Upon arrival at the dive location, your Dive Master will go over the dive plan and provide either snorkel or scuba diving equipment depending upon your choice. This is for both certified divers and those new to the sport.
The easy access from the dive shop to the water will make this shore dive stress-free and is a perfect option for novices, or cruise ship divers that would prefer to not spend the whole day on a dive boat. For those just discovering how to dive, your English speaking Dive Master will give you a brief, but thorough, introduction to the sport and you will learn the basic skills to enjoy this one tank dive excursion.
Once in the water, you will find yourself surrounded by a diverse marine life. It is quite common to spot eagle rays, grunts, snappers, angelfish, parrotfish, grouper, turtles, trumpet fish, wrasse, spotted drum fish, amberjacks, and even long snout seahorses in the area around the reef.
The natural marine life is not the only interesting viewing opportunity, however, your experienced Dive Master will also take you to the famous underwater statues -The Christ, Chacmol (Mayan God of rain), and the Virgin Mary.
If you are a Certified Diver you will also be led into a cave named "La Quebrada" - this is the only cave you can dive through from the shore in Cozumel.
After your dive, you are welcome to stay at Chankanaab and sunbathe in a lounge chair at the beach or take a nap in a hammock with the sounds of lapping waters. Snorkeling gear is also included if you wish to continue enjoying the marine life. The park offers many other activities and attractions that are also included - a botanical garden, an authentic Mayan House (with homemade tortillas samples), a Tequila Exhibit that is also with samples, Eco-Archeological and Archaeological Mayan Replicas, a swimming pool, a Crocodile Exhibition, and a Sea Lion show!
You can purchase either Mexican style food, or the many other choices offered from the restaurants right on the beach. When you are ready to head out, there are many taxis at Chankanaab to take you back to your Cozumel cruise pier at your leisure and own expense.
