Where are we going today?

If you have always dreamed about having those one of a kind experiences with our beautiful ocean wildlife, then look no further than Discovery Cove!

Discovery Cove is a place where you can have some amazing experiences and encounters! You can swim with bottlenose dolphins, or even play inches from some sweet otters! If it's birds you love, you can feed them too!

To top is all off...you can walk on the ocean floor...all day long!

One of the highlights at Discovery Cove is the Grand Reef's innovative experience - SeaVenture. Here, it is like being in a submarine, only it's just you and a helmet! This underwater tour sees you just place on a diving helmet, and you'll feel right at home underneath the ocean!

Every step gives you a new discovery, and you don't even need to be SCUBA certified. You just have to be keen!

Discovery Cove have a number of signature experiences that you can enjoy - and you can fill your day with them! Why not spend the morning nose to nose with some sharks, and then in the afternoon snorkel with exotic fish? Perhaps around lunch you just want to recline on the sandy beaches. It's your day, and you can fill it with as many amazing encounters as you like!

Your admission to Discovery Cove already includes a host of activities, including 30 minutes with the dolphins, snorkelling, otter encounters, hand feeding birds, the beaches, AND unlimited admission to SeaWorld, Aquatic and SeaWorld's Waterpark, for 14 days around your time at Discovery Cove. Now THAT is amazing!

Kids over 6 years will love the dolphin encounters - so why not make it a family day out that you will never forget!

    I live in central Florida, but my visit to Discovery Cove may have been the best stay-cation that I’ve been on in a while. I was more relaxed (and full) after a day there than at a spa day. My friend and I went as a girls weekend, and we loved the serene ambiance, unlimited drinks, and fun experiences. We both jumped back when we had a 6ft stingray glide right past us in the great barrier reef. Plus, we LOVED floating down the river as it went through the aviary. The entire place was so beautiful, and the staff was so willing to help, it was like...Read More

    It was right up there in the top 3 experiences of my life! We were where to go every step of the way. The staff was super friendly! It was pouring rain the morning we arrived but that couldn't stop us from enjoying the beauty of the park. Just as we entered the water for our dolphin swim the rain stopped. Our dolphin was Coral and she was just beautiful! The moment I got on that dolphin and rode her to shore actual tears well up in my eyes! The grand reef was awesome too! At first I was terrified of all the big rays and fish but I soon realized...Read More

    This was the best experience that my family and I ever had. You can't put in words how beautiful this resort is. The associates at this resort were so accommodating, and extremely polite. We had our own Cabana, and swam with the Dolphins. We have our DVD recording of our family experience to treasure for many years to come. This was the most beautiful place that we visited during our family vacation in Florida. Though we visited a lot of sites and parks, this was by far the BEST!! The resort provides you with swimming goggles (even prescription...Read More

    Very good service. Loved swimming with the animals. Little pricey but worth every penny.

    Absolute worst customer service I have ever had. My father in law booked a reservation for my wife and
    I as a surprise. He gave us the information that night , my wife and I unfortunately had other plans and are not able to attend. Called customer service less than 12 hours from the booking time as soon as they opened. They told us because the booking date was 28 days from the date booked we were within a 30 day no cancellation date and could not get a refund for the 550 dollars worth of tickets! We spoke to the supervisor and she was INCREDIBLY...Read More

The entire place was so beautiful, and the staff was so willing to help, it was like taking the best parts of a cruise in one day. I don’t say this often, but it was completely worth the money. I would recommend Discovery Cove to anyone.

At first I was terrified of all the big rays and fish but I soon realized they don't care that you are there and will just swim away. The water is so salty all you have to do is float there! My boyfriend took my hand and together we floated over 15ft of water and watched giant rays swim past us! This is an experience I will treasure for the rest of my life! Thank you discovery cove!

This was the most beautiful place that we visited during our family vacation in Florida. Though we visited a lot of sites and parks, this was by far the BEST!! The resort provides you with swimming goggles (even prescription goggles) and a snorkel to see all the beautiful fish you swim with. I also have a sister who is physically disabled, and with the assistance of their beach wheelchairs, we were able to include her is all of the activities with no restrictions, it was so awesome. Our Cabana hostess was there for us every step of the way. I believe her name was Cheryl, she is in college and is majoring in clothing design. Nicole was our instructor during the swim with the dolphins, she was so helpful and provided us with an awesome experience. My son is autistic and while feeding the dolphins fish, he stated that they were eating anchovies and seafood, Nicole laughed hysterically, I hope she remembers. Like I stated, we have it all on DVD. We plan on visiting again in a year or two, and if you and your family are going to Florida for a vacation, make sure you put Discovery Cove on your list. Again thank you to all the associates at Discovery Cove for making our family vacation the best we ever had.

We spoke to the supervisor and she was INCREDIBLY rude and condicending, we asked to speak to someone else and she told us there is nobody else you can talk to and basically told us that we had nothing we could do and we were screwed. All we are asking for is a refund, we live in tampa and were passholders for busch gardens and we will not attend again. A simple refund would have kept us customers. BUYER BEWARE!
