This is a one of a kind adventure, the only swim with manatees program in the Caribbean. Manatees are beautiful and enormous, once thought by sailors to be mermaids, these gentle giants can grow as long as 13ft/4m and weigh up to 1300 lbs/600 kgs!

Bring the family to live the experience of swimming with manatees in the paradise of Chankanaab National Park, surrounded by beautiful flora and fauna with vistas of the turquoise sea. 


Submerse yourself in the underwater world of the manatee, share a kiss and a hug and even feed these magnificent creatures while swimming with them in their home in the sea.
