Discovery Cove Orlando

Theme Park Attraction in Orlando

Discovery Cove Orlando is a theme park which provides a safe and easy opportunity to enjoy amazing bucket list experiences like swimming with dolphins. A sister park to SeaWorld Orlando and Aquatica Orlando, it is home to recreations of natural environments in which you can interact with the wildlife.

Swimming with dolphins is a common feature on lists of activities people should or wish to experience before they die, and one which Discovery Cove Orlando can make a reality. The Dolphin Lagoon at the heart of the park, which is just across the road from SeaWorld Orlando, gives guests 30 minutes with one of many of these majestic creatures, during which they can touch, play, swim and even learn to communicate with it and ride its dorsal fin. This is all under the supervision of experienced trainers, ensuring that neither guests nor animals are harmed.

Another area of the park contains The Grand Reef – a recreation of a coral reef, which is home to thousands of fish and rays. You can swim and snorkel among most of them, and you can observe the reef sharks through safety glass. You can even dive down to explore the reef and its inhabitants up close with the SeaVenture underwater walking tour, priced at $59 per person.

Discovery Cove Orlando also recreates a tropical river environment, giving you the chance to interact with freshwater creatures such as otters and marmosets. This, as well as the Wind-Away River and Serenity Bay also offer relaxation in natural surrounds – like a holiday within a holiday.

It’s not all about the water, though. Discovery Cove Orlando has an extensive aviary, which is home to over 250 tropical birds from more than 30 species. It is a free-flight facility, meaning that the birds are not held in cages but can fly around and even onto you, allowing a far greater level of interactivity than is generally possible.

Prices depend on the package you choose as well as the day you choose to visit. The standard Day Resort Package features freshly-prepared breakfast and lunch, unlimited snacks and drinks, access to all of the attractions except for the Dolphin Lagoon, admission to SeaWorld Orlando and Aquatica Orlando within a week before or after your visit to Discovery Cove and use of snorkelling gear, wetsuits, towels, lockers, sunscreen, showers, changing rooms and car parking, all from $169. The addition of the dolphin swimming experience puts the price up to $229.
