Scheduling excursion at Chukanaab park

Recommended Posts

I scheduled a shore excursion at chukanaab park at 10:00am to swim w the manatees and we get to port at Port Maya on Carnival Vista at 9:00am .......ships time at port time will be the same ...so will this be enough time to get off ship get a taxi ride there????

Going to be tight.  Assuming the ship docks and is tied off at 9AM (no delays in transit), it typically takes 20-30 minutes to clear customs in Mexico before they let passengers off.  You're a 5 minute walk to the taxi stand, maybe 10 if slow walker or have children.  The taxi area captain will get you a taxi right away.  About a 10 minute ride or so, depending on traffic.

Are you going before the clocks go back in US?

 

Cozumel is on EST year round now. Swim time will be local time.

Yes we are going on September 26

I keep forgetting  the Vista is out of Galveston  now. So yes port-ship same time. Just be ready  to go when they let you off.

There will be taxis lined up outside the port, and also taxis lined up outside Chankanaab to bring you back.  Very easy.

How was your excursion?   We are thinking of booking directly as well. Would love to hear what you thought about it.

It was my whole family’s favorite excursion out of all of our excursions ... the manatees were the cutest things I have ever seen .... we got to hold them, feed them and play w them a whole hour ... I don’t think you get this much time w the dolphin ... I highly recommend it .  Also w got off the ship right at 9:00am when it docked and got there by 9:30am( getting a taxi was simple and quick) with plenty of time to spare ... so the 10:00am appointment worked perfect for us..... we were on the Carnival Vista out of Galveston.. so ship time and port time were the same
