Discovery Cove

For a truly unforgettable, once in a lifetime experience, you can do no better than to visit Sea World’s sister park, Discovery Cove.

Set in a tropical haven of white sandy beaches, swaying palms and glistening lagoons, Discovery Cove is the place in central Florida where you really can realise your dreams of swimming with dolphins.

With admission numbers strictly limited to just 1000 guests per day, you will never feel cramped as you explore the lush green nature trails, swim in the deep blue waters or dine in the all inclusive family restaurant. Needless to say, the staff and trainers at Discovery Cove are always on hand to assist you and answer any questions, in order to ensure that your day of relaxation and adventure really is a truly magical experience.

An early start, in order to take in all that this fantastic park has to offer, is definitely advised, and after your initial orientation is completed, you will be allocated a choice of swim times for that all important one on one dolphin encounter. (Of course, if you prefer not to take advantage of the dolphin swim and merely wish to relax amongst a background of nature’s bounty, you are free to do so).

Another delight of this magical park is the free flight aviary, entered by swimming beneath the crashing waters of an overhead waterfall, where you can once again interact, feed and get to know new feathered friends, who will not only delight you with their beauty and stunning colours, but also by their trusting nature, as they glide deftly to your open hand.

With wet suits, snorkels, towels and goggles all provided, you are free to spend as much time as you wish swimming and floating in amongst the reefs and grottos to witness, up close and personal, the splendour and vivid colours of tropical fish, sting rays and even sharks!

Without doubt however, everyone’s highlight at Discovery Cove is their dolphin interaction. Much has been written about the bottlenose dolphin, and they seem to hold a special place in all our hearts.

Certainly, once you have swum with these majestic and beautiful creatures, witnessed first hand their sense of fun, experienced their grace, agility and power, you will be hooked for life, and want to return again and again to repeat what is truly a humbling and in some cases, a life changing experience.

Whilst not a cheap day out, it is without a doubt worth every cent of the admission price, and a genuinely moving and unforgettable experience.
