It's hard to add much here that hasn't already been said, yes it's a lot of money for one day but it's far and away the best activity that you'll do in Orlando. Top tip is to get there as early as you can, doors are open from 7.30. That way you get a nice early swim time with the... More

What can I say, we swam with dolphins what's not to love! the whole experience was unforgettable. The day was well organised, you can eat and drink when you want as it is all inclusive. You don't get long with the dolphins but the time you do get is simply amazing. well worth a visit.

Loved the all inclusive setup. Staff was fantastic. The lovely lady working with the otters took the time to speak to my daughter about the otters and then let her know that feeding time was coming up and even let my daughter drop food through a tube straight to the otters. I'm sorry I don't remember her name - but... More

Other reviews have said it before. A bit expensive but well worth it. The dolphins were amazing, especially the dorsal fin tow. The reef was beautiful. All inclusive pricing takes away another hassle factor. And the food is well-done, with good prep and reasonable variety for mass-produced meals. But I have to say, don't forget the aviary! As you swim... More

This day was amazing and really made our holiday. It was quite expensive but in my opinion worth it. It is all inclusive and the food is amazing available all day to eat and drink as much as you want. The dolphins were amazing to swim with i noticed you can either pay to come and not swim with dolphins... More

A good day, fulfilling a long ambition to swim with a dolphin! However, it is expensive and the time with these beautiful creatures is not long. My daughter was thrilled to meet them- the look on her face was fabulous to see!! It is advertised as all inclusive and we were happy with the food. Lunchtime queues were a bit... More

Discovery Cove is just fantastic, totally worth the price, which is not cheap. The Dolphin encounter was the most wonderful thing my kids and I have ever done and will remember it forever. The dolphin was Thelma, who was a complete sweetheart. We fell in love with her. She was so smart, so gentle and lovable. From being able to... More
