Our Trip to Chankanaab & Dolphin Encounter
Our group was small 4 mom's (including me) and 6 kids. My 11 year old was the oldest child and my 2 year old was the youngest. First we were directed to the free lockers to stow our stuff. This is where I encountered my first issues This one is purely our issue, nothing to do with the park itself. The lockers are a nice size, however we had brought our wheeled backpack as a beach bag/diaper bag. I thought this would be a huge help with the stroller and the 11 year old in a cast. Not so much It would NOT fit in the locker. So we were forced to remove valuable and cram them in the locker and the stash the backpack and stroller nearby.
We then resorted to wrapping my son's cast in Saran wrap and white duct tape. Yes, it did get wet, but not to bad. Due to the locker issue and the arm wrapping we were a little late getting to the instruction portion of the encounter. Next up, we were given life jackets and headed down to the pier and into the water.
