Florida Guide > 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.
