The best day out you can think off. Great location and we have returned 5 years on the bounce. Nothing to dislike at all

I can't say enough about how wonderful this place is. The dolphin swim, of course, incredible. But the lazy river, the aviary, the coral reef, the otters? We spent much more time here than we expected! A tip is to look up when they open for registration (7:15 in our case) and arrive early. The earlier you arrive, the earlier... More

My wife and I spent a day here at Discovery Cove and I am so glad we chose to book this experience. Everything from the staff to the attractions were exactly what was expected. It is most certainly a all day event so make sure you get there early! We opted for the dolphin swim which is a experience all... More

This is the most amazing experience from start to finish, so worth the money we paid! From the moment we walked in to walking out all staff members were so friendly, the actual encounter is brilliant you sit through a little induction then go to the lagoon and I am not a strong swimmer so I had to do the...

From the food to the experience, Discovery Cove can guarantee an absolutely unforgettable experience. Me and my family are from England and often visit Orlando as it is our top holiday destination. We have never been to Discovery Cove and booked on the off chance. It is THE best decision we made as it was one the best days we... More

This was our 2nd visit to Discovery Cove and I certainly hope to keep coming back again and again! Between the thrills of snorkeling in the grand reef and feeding countless colorful birds in the aviary is the supreme relaxation of being away from it all! With no cares once you step through the doors and your breakfast/lunch and snacks... More

This place is amazing. So much fun. So peaceful and intimate and very relaxing. The dolphin swim is out of this world and swimming with tropical fish and rays is definitely worth doing! Would go again and again
