Florida Guide > Discovery Cove

Discovery Cove part 2

We also eyed the desserts; key lime pie, carrot cake, vanilla cake, strawberries and melon were all spotted.

Drinks were a range of soft drinks, draught and bottled beers.

Outside the main restaurant area were a 3 piece Caribbean band playing. I really, really enjoyed this part and could have quite happily sat there for the rest of the day listening to them – oh yes, forgot, we had actually come to swim with dolphins!

Situated throughout the park are also snack bars serving crisps, biscuits, slush drinks and a small range of hot and cold snacks.

The park is decided into 2 main sections, the activity section and the swim with dolphin’s area.

As our dolphin swim wasn’t until later we decided to try the activity section.

First up was the lazy river. I think the path of this goes throughout the whole park and essentially a gentle current pushes you around its warm waters. Some parts were very shallow others quite deep. You slowly pass through tunnels with stalactites and also straight through a water fall to find yourself in the avery! . All the while with lovely well maintained gardens around you as we had come to expect.

Next we tried the ray pool. Needless to say you enter a shallow pool and can actually swim and touch the rays. They all seemed very tame and were well use to human intervention; and no they didn’t (were capable of! ) stinging! . This was all quite mellow but a little bit dull for me so onwards to the reef.

Snorkel on, mask on, then straight in. Lots of fish to see and plenty of interesting colourful reefs. Shallow at the edges but very deep in the middle; only for the brave people that bit ? . Very enjoyable and almost like really being out in open water on a reef.

Finally to the avery. The other entrance to this is by foot so you watch all the people on the lazy river from above slowly drifting by. Lots of varied birds with food being handed out if you wish to feed them. Apparently best to do this early in the day as by the end of the day the birds tend to be full up and don’t want to eat! ! . All of the species seemed very tame and were quite happy to pose for photo’s or be touched and prodded by countless children…and my wife!
