Dolphins have captured our imagination for centuries; they are intelligent, playful, social, friendly and are reputed to have highly specialized sensory abilities which have, in some circles, elevated their status to “spiritual”.
If you are not familiar with dolphin facts it makes for fascinating reading and research. These mammals number almost forty different species and they are found worldwide, mostly in the shallower seas of the continental shelves. They are carnivores, mostly eating fish and squid, and evolved about ten million years ago from terrestrial mammals. Most dolphins have acute eyesight, both in and out of the water, and their sense of hearing is superior to that of humans.
Take the opportunity to spend time with the Atlantic Bottlenose dolphin by participating in one of the many educational or fun encounters available on Cozumel. It is truly an unforgettable experience.
