We had a memorable day in Discovery Cove during our family holiday. We did all the Disney and Universal parks but Discovery Cove was the family favourite. Although, it is expensive, it is an all-inclusive park and it is worth every penny. Food, drinks, snacks, towels, wet-suit, googles and snorkles, sun tan lotion, parking, sun lounges group photo and even... More

Had such an amazing time at Discovery Cove. Well worth the money. The food was good, drinks cold, there are NO lines, we snorkeled all day with lots of different fish. We are a family of four with a 5 & 6 year old. So the 5 year old was not quite old enough to swim with the dolphins, but... More

Great way to take a day out from all the theme park lines, fast passes, express passes and general hyper activity of the typical Orlando holiday. Okay, it's very very expensive, but you are treated to 5 star service throughout the day from the very moment you arrive. To get the whole experience (especially if taking children) you should seriously... More

OMG this is a must do! Swimming with the dolphins is an amazing experience and you get to learn so much about these amazing animals. There is also a lazy river that you can go round through to the otters, marmosettes and aviary. They have plenty to explore on the way round from underwater statues to waterfalls to swim through....

Having spent 6 days in Florida, visiting Universal, Seaworld and Aquatica, this was the family's favourite attraction. The grounds are well laid out; breakfast, lunch and snacks are included in the deal (and the quality was reasonable); plenty of sun beds although we hardly spent any time on them; awesome aviary. Top tip - while you don't need the wetsuit... More

One of the best things I have ever done. The swim with the dolphins was amazing but being able to float around the lazy river or swim with the fish and get some amazing underwate photographs really made my holiday. It was only a shame we had to leave.

Was treated to a day at Discovery Cove for my birthday, wasn't sure if it would be "my thing" but how wrong was I! An amazing day from start to finish. Arrived early to enjoy breakfast, great choice, fitted out for wet-suits etc, which was completed really quickly. They restrict visitors so myself and my husband could always find a... More

There were bossy employees who didn't even smile.. the animals were interesting but nothing stood out! I could have done his for free back in Mexico, not worth the money.

Was really surprised at how good this was. Even if you don't swim with dolphins, it's a great day out. Expensive admittedly but, if you combine it with a Seaworld, Aquatica pass, it can work out better value.
