“Spectacular!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

At first, I was hesitating when we booked this activity. Swimming with dolphins... Not so sure. Oh my, how wrong I was! It was the best activity we've done in Orlando! You must try SeaVenture! Walking underwater, surrounded with fish and stingrays was a formidable experience! We loved every moment on the site! Food and drinks were great too. Thumbs up!

“Best day of our honeymoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

We spent 11 nights for our honeymoon at Animal Kingdom Lodge Disney World and every single day was magical, but our day at discovery cove was both mine and my wife's favorite day. I paid extra for the private cabana, totally worth it if you can spare the coin. you have your own staff member to assist you, free wine, drinks, snacks inside your cabana, private area to sun bathe read, whatever. So first thing after we ate breakfast we did the bird section and had all these amazing birds right on us as we fed them. We were already saying this was one of the best days of our life before we even did the dolphin swim. I absolutely loved the grand reef and swimming with piles of rays and fish. With the packaged I booked it also came with a personalized buoy that a dolphin brought to my wife and surprised her with it, i loved the way the staff arranged it for us. Nothing less then a perfect day

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

Beautiful location and prefect for a relaxing day away from the busy parks. The dolphin intraction was wonderful and we thoroughly enjoy snorkelling the reefs (some of those Rays are huge!!). The whole atmosphere was relaxing and the staff very friendly and helpful.
Clean, tidy and plenty of sun loungers avaikble when you wanted to take a break from the water and top up the tan.
The food was great and it was so nice not having to worry about carrying money around for food and drinks.
The photo packages can be a little pricey but at the end of the day, it's a once in a lifetime experience and one we wanted to capture, so we went all out. There is no pressure to buy though, so if you don't want to spend a penny, you don't have to.
Thank you Discovery Cove for a wonderful experience...we will be back!

“Best dolphin swim”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

My family have swum with dolphins in the keys and in Hawaii. By far the best place to swim with dolphins. Best value and best organised day.
