Introduction to Discovery Cove
At Discovery Cove, you can immerse yourself in adventure, swim with a dolphin, snorkel amongst tropical fish and glide with rays. This full day experience is all yours to enjoy at your own pace – and all included with a continental breakfast, sumptuous buffet lunch and snacks throughout the day!
Your unique oppurtunity to get right up close to a beautiful bottlenose dolphin. Firstly, you'll be briefed by Discovery Cove's animal trainers, then you'll go into the water for your 30 minute interaction in groups of no more than 8 people, and to get to know your new friend through hugs, kisses, fish and finally a one-on-one dorsal pull.
Freshwater Oasis – Now Open!
New at Discovery Cove is Freshwater Oasis featuring all-new swimming and wading adventures and face-to-face encounters with playful otters and curious marmosets. Designed with a rainforest canopy above and sparkling-clear springs below, Freshwater Oasis is a natural fit with Discovery Cove’s tropical vibe
The Grand Reef
Beyond the sandy white beach and natural shoreline lies a whole other world, Discovery Cove's new tropical reef. Immerse yourself in waters teeming with sea life…where thousands of exotic fish and rays await you. Everyone is invited to wade, swim or snorkel freely through this vibrant reef. You never know what you'll discover. Safely share the water with exotic eels, lionfish and sharks. Explore waterside trails and bridges to one of the reef's many islands.
Aviary/Free Flight Aviary
Discovery Cove's® Free-Flight aviary encourages up-close interactions with more than 250 tropical birds, including colorful toucans, red-legged seriemas and blue-bellied rollers. There's also a small-bird sanctuary where you can get up close with tiny honeycreepers and mousebirds. Where else can you touch, feed and get acquainted with hundreds of colorful tropical birds and other fascinating wildlife.
Those looking for an even more exhilarating adventure can take part in The Grand Reef's innovative experience, SeaVenture, an underwater walking tour. Wearing dive helmets, guests will come face to fins with venomous lionfish and sharks (safely behind massive panoramic windows). SeaVenture is a once-in-a-lifetime, underwater experience available for a nominal fee.
