Discovery Cove® is an all-inclusive adventure in which guests enjoy a one-of-a-kind opportunity to swim with dolphins, rays and tropical fish and hand-feed exotic birds. Discovery Cove is a paradise of rocky lagoons surrounded by lush landscaping, tropical reefs, winding rivers, a resort-style pool complete with waterfalls, and pristine white-sand beaches.
Reservations are required, and daily attendance is limited to approximately 1,300 guests, ensuring no overcrowding. Guests are greeted at a luxurious reception center and proceed down a nature walk for their day of discovery. The all-inclusive adventure of a day at Discovery Cove includes a freshly prepared breakfast and lunch, snacks and beverages (water, soft drinks, and alcoholic beverages) throughout the day. Each guest is also provided his/her own swim vest or wetsuit, towel and swim gear, including a souvenir snorkel and eco-friendly sunscreen. Private lockers and dressing areas are also available. Unlimited admission to SeaWorld Orlando and Aquatica is included and Busch Gardens can be added for an additional charge.
Dolphin Lagoon – The highlight of a visit to Discovery Cove is the opportunity to swim with an Atlantic bottlenose dolphin during a 30-minute interactive adventure. Accompanied by a trainer, groups of seven to nine guests wade into shallow water and become acquainted with their dolphin through hugs, kisses and rubdowns. Then, taking the adventure one step further, guests interact with their dolphin in deeper water for an exciting dorsal fin tow ride back to shore. Guests must be at least 6 years old for the dolphin swim experience.
The Grand Reef ® features multiple levels of exploration, from shallow waters to deeper swimming adventures, from white sandy beaches to snorkeling among tropical fish, rays, and canyons inspired by reefs from around the world. Guests can discover a below-the-surface world teeming with sea life, or they can snorkel in deeper waters as thousands of exotic fish and graceful rays swim around them. Families can explore along the water’s edge or cross a bridge to see sharks swimming below.
Explorer’s Aviary – This free-flight aviary is home to more than 250 exotic birds. Guests can hand-feed hundreds of tiny birds and interact with birds as tall as four feet. Guests enter the aviary’s lush, tropical environment by way of the park’s beaches or drifting under the refreshing waterfalls in the Wind-away River.
Wind-away River – This waterway meanders through the park, encountering beaches, palm-covered walkways and rocky lagoons. Guests swimming through the Wind-away River travel through different environments: a sunny island beach, a dense tropical forest and an underwater cave. Swimmers going under a waterfall will emerge inside the immense free-flight aviary. Flotation devices are provided as the river varies in depth.
Freshwater Oasis® features wading adventures and face-to-face encounters with playful otters and curious marmosets. Designed with a rainforest canopy above and sparkling-clear springs below, guests can relax and explore and find endless discoveries.
SeaVenture ® is an underwater walking tour where guests, wearing dive helmets, find up-close encounters with sharks (safely behind massive panoramic windows), one-on-one touches with unique animals and schools of fish and gentle rays.
Serenity Bay Beaches and Pools – Sugar-white beaches are lined with swaying palms, tropical foliage and quaint thatched huts. Guests can claim their own spot among the tall shady umbrellas, sunning lounges and beach chairs. Buckets and sand toys are sprinkled along the beach for kids to enjoy. (All amenities are included with admission.)
For two consecutive years, Discovery Cove was ranked No. 1 in the 2014 TripAdvisor® Traveler’s Choice™ Awards under the “Top 25 Amusement Parks & Water Parks in The World” category.
