We ended up with a photo package. The pictures are priceless. Even if you are not a good swimmer snorkling is... More

One of the cruelest examples of how we humans explode mother nature. No matter how many animals they save, and return to nature, orcas live up to 12 years in their tiny pools. A wild orca can live up to 99 years wild. The save animals is a strategy to portray they are so caring to mother nature. If so,... More

Seaward have got this right ... we had an amazing day here and its recommended too all. Granted it is expensive but you do get seaworld and aquatica as part of the deal. You get good food all in for breakfast and lunch, there are limited admissions which is great and adventures with fish, rays, sharks, otters, birds, monkeys and... More

Lovely idea, but these poor animals should be in the ocean with their families and natural habitat. No matter how fabulous the cove seems, it just doesn't feel right when you know the animals are being fed by trainers to perform

In my opinion this is the Number 1 attraction in Orlando, from arrival to departure I felt that I was treated like a human rather than a walking wallet. Once registration is complete, you continue to breakfast ( all food and drink included in price ) then onwards - wetsuit or vest the choice is yours - collect snorkel and... More

There is lots to do like swimming with dolphins (added payment at time of booking) swim with fish and rays and do the lazy river, which takes you round the resort. while on the river you can hop off to see the island marmosets and avery.

If you're an animal lover, this place is worth every penny. I opted not to do the dolphin "swim" as it didn't seem worth it for the price. They have a free shuttle here from Sea World, the shuttle driver offered some great advice to go to the aviary first thing in the morning. I arrived around 9:15 am and... More

We had a great time at our visit. It's pricey but the fact that they only let in a certain number of guests per day, really make it enjoyable. The staff is very accommodating and the food is good. We defiantly ate and drank of our share. Be award.. Swimming with the dolphins in not included in the cost! But,... More

We spent the day at discovery cove during our recent trip. We did the dolphin experience...the kids (ages 8 and 11) LOVED it. As did the adult kids! ;). It was rather short but still an exciting experience! We were able to snorkel all day and that was incredible. Throw caution to the wind (or the pocket book anyway) and... More
