We love Discovery Cove. Apart from the swimming with Dolphins (I bobbed with them as I can't swim!) there is a fantastic range of food constantly served throughout the day from the restaurant and beach bars. All food and beverages are included in the price. Get there early to get the best positioned sun loungers and take an umbrella to... More

If you do one attraction while on vacation please do discovery cove, you will not be disappointed. Did the swim with dolphin experience with my daughter and will never forget. Bought the photo package which was expensive however worth it. Would defiantly recommend.

Did the dolphin interaction here during our 2 week holiday, and it was probably the best experience we have ever had on a holiday. It was on the pricey side, but for a once off treat it is absolutely worth it. All your food and drinks are included, and the number of visitors per day are capped so it's a... More

Discovery Cove was the highlight of our trip! This is a very well fun park and has amazing opportunities to experience dolphins and other underwater wildlife you can't see anywhere else. It is a pricey activity but when you factor in the cost includes Sea World and Aquatica for 14 days it is well worth the cost!

If you have never been swimming in the Caribbean, your aquarium at home or have a fear of fish in general - this is the place to go. It is a great place for families with children. The staff is friendly, the area feels safe and the experience in priceless. We paid a bit extra to go swimming with the... More

The best place in the world, so relaxing, thrilling and perfect. We had a great day and were able to achieve a lifelong dream of swimming with dolphins. Nothing more to say!

We had a great day at Discovery Cove. We arrived at the park at 7:15 so we could get an early Dolphin swim time. I am glad we did. We received an 8:10 dolphin swim time. We immediately went to eat breakfast at 7:35. There are two reasons I won't give Discovery Cove five stars and the first is because... More

This was a once in a lifetime trip due to the cost. But when you factor in the price includes unlimited admission into SeaWorld and Aquatica as well as your breakfast, lunch, snacks, drinks, sunscreen, wetsuits, snorkles, etc., it is a fair price. We created family memories which will last a lifetime. The resort is beautiful, clean, and all of... More

All-inclusive with meals and drinks. Do your research, to be prepared for the day. Arrive early, wear water shoes, and enjoy the day!
