After days at Seaworld and Aquatica, Discovery cove was a great change of pace. No lines, no hustle and bustle, just relaxation at it's best. We had so much fun snorkeling with our sons. They were fascinated by the fish and rays. We made a lot of memories that day. Awesome place and can't wait to return.

This is the most lovely way to spend a day in the Florida sun! We paid for the tickets when we got there as we had already done the dolphin swim etc on previous visits and most pre-book tickets in the UK require you to include the dolphin swim. If you have never done it, it is a nice experience... More

This was a lovely day (apart from afternoon thunderstorm- restaurant too small for everybody to shelter at the same time) swimming with the dolphins experience was magical (Bryan & Brian) very funny and their dolphins were great. All snorkling was brill and the kids loved their rollercoaster free day!!! Pictures also lovely and a great memento of the day.

Chilled, great fishes to snorkel with, fun swim with dolphins. Food okay - breakfast disappointing I was expecting waffles, pancakes etc but more like school meals. Lunch better. Some people didn't seem to get the park layout and never got beyond the first pool. The great fish are past the dolphin pools. One girl had hysterics at the fantastic rays... More

We went there because my daughter and I love dolphins....after this trip...we were madly in love with the dolphins. Everything is included and the options were plentiful and very accessible. Swimming with the dolphins was worth every penny. When you walk into Discovery Cove you immediately feel as though you have been transported to a tropical island..not that you are... More

A perfect day. Swimming with dolphins was everything we could have dreamed of. The park itself was spotless and staff couldnt have been more helpful. Was great to have an 'all inclusive' policy as well. I would pay double what I did to experience this again,

Myself and my 17 year old daughter have just come back from 2 weeks in Orlando and had an absolutely fantastic holiday. As a surprise for her I book Discovery Cove as she has always wanted to go swimming with the dolphins. It was a fantastic day starting at 8am. I would advise you to get there at that time... More

This place is unbelievable, a little pricey but if you can afford one not to miss. You swim with a dolphin, snorkel around warm water oasis, relax on the beach (man made) swim with the sting rays and other fishes. All the food and drink you could want for free! Just amazing!

For what you get, you pay a high price. $200 dollars entry alone, will get you a days swimming in all the public areas, includig the ray pool and swmiing (yes swimming!) throught the aviary! Or you walk through the aviary and feed the birds. It a special day and one you should make time (and budget) for. But the... More
