Since being little I have always wanted to swim with a dolphin. Yesterday my dream came true. Discovery Cove isn't cheap but breakfast, snacks, lunch and drinks are all free. As well as meeting Dolphins you can float down a tropical river (snorkelling gear, wetsuits or vests are free for the day. You can see Otters and Marmosets; sharks; and... More

Before we went to Florida, everyone at home was telling us we would enjoy Discovery Cove, so we booked our trip, and guess what, they were right! We decided to go for the day package with the dolphin swim, and it was worth every cent! We arrived very early on the day (again like our friends had recommended) and lots... More

We booked a swim with the dolphins at discovery cove and all agreed it was the best day in the the two weeks spent here. Everything was superb. The whole place is immaculate and the swim with the dolphins was the best thing ever. If you haven't tried this experience yet all I can say is please do as you... More

My wife and I love Discovery Cove, you feel special from the time you check in until the time you leave. The day now includes breakfast and lunch, and free wine and beer, what more do you need. The grand reef is full of fish and it's amazing to swim next to these fish. Also love feeding the birds in... More

This would be number 1 on my list for Florida if I was asked for a must do list. It seems expensive when you book it, but I thought it was worth every penny.

We chose not to do the dolphin swim but still had an amazing day here. It's a clean and tidy place. We spent our day swinging in a hammock, swimming in crystal clear lagoons, swimming with rays, tropical fish, coming face to face with otters, sharks, eels. Perfect.

This was the first thing we booked once the flights were confirmed. And it was the best day of our holiday. We had an exceptionally nice October day, not a cloud in the sky, so that was a good start. We arrived and there is plenty of free parking. Once signed in we were shown around and then we hit... More

I love dolphins they are my favourite animal when I found out when I was going to orlando and that we were going to discovery cove. The price isn't cheap I can tell you that but it's a once in a life time experience. There is a lazy river there for breakfast&lunch, a dolphin lagoon, the grand reef (that's were... More

My wife and I were celebrating our 21st wedding anniversary and we chose this attraction to go to first when we were in Orlando. The check in process was very smooth and trouble free. Highly recommend that you pay the extra $$$ for private cabanas. They have a fully stocked fridge and private lockers for valuables. Also if you are... More
