We went to discovery cove for the third time in November 2016. The two previous times we visited we had a dolphin swim but didn't this time. You do pay quite a lot for a ticket but it's a good deal for what you get included. You get breakfast and lunch, snacks and drinks, sunscreen, the use of equipment to... More

This was one of my favorite parts of the trip. I know it's expensive, but it's totally worth getting your own private cabana. We had our own attendant that had the mini fridge stocked with all of our favorite beverages and kept a good supply of clean towels there. We were right off the beach where we could slip into...

I visited discovery cove a year ago with family. This place was the highlight of our holiday last year. This year, although I really enjoyed it, a few things disappointed me. Firstly, our ticket stated a free arrival photo was included in our package, which we received last year but not this year. Secondly, I found one female member of... More

Worth every penny! The entire family loved this! As awesome as swimming with the dolphin is, there's several other outstanding activities here that you will never forget. And due to the exclusivity, there's no lines or crowds of people to contend with. I cannot wait to go back.

My husband and I spent the day at Discovery Cove and enjoyed it very much. The "park" is never crowded. The water temps are perfect. I love the aviary (birds land right on your arms and head!). We very much enjoyed snorkeling in the reef; there was so much to see. It is nice that everything (except your swim suit)... More

Me and my wife got our tickets our tickets in advance through Attraction Tickets Direct, and we booked the Dolphin Swim and Seaventure. Both are well worth it. The Seaventure, you are wearing a suberdiver helmet which has constant oxygen running to the helmet, and you are walking with a group of about 10 people underwater and you get to... More

I went here with my dad and a friend and it really is a great atmosphere. I would most definitely go back, it just created really great memories. The place itself has so much detail and work put into it, really awesome and relaxing.

This place is it!! Quite pricey but if you want a lifetime of memories it is well worth the money. I took both of my Daughters and my Wife. It was 600.00 for us all but soooo many memories of swimming and interacting with real live dolphins.
