Best day ever! Arrived at Discovery Cove was greeted by very friendly staff. Then we was greeted by a photographer who took a complimentary family photo of us. First stop was breakfast, staff were very accommodating with my allergy (lactose intolerant ) even gave me soy milk for my coffee. We then went to the locker hire, they have animal... More

This place is amazing. Worth every penny. First of all the staff was great, friendly and very helpful. If I could remember all their names I would but everyone was amazing. Lots of room and just a blast. Dolphin encounter went way above and beyond my expectations. Goto the bird area and be amazed here too. Go early and the... More

This was a fantastic experience and I would recommend to everybody! They cater for people who can't swim and people who can. The dolphin swim was amazing! You can choose to swim out to a trainer and you have to tread water or swim in the shallow which is 3ft. All drinks/snacks/ food is free and they have a pretty... More

I cannot praise Discovery Cove enough. We had the most amazing day. We booked a Dolphin interaction package and the SeaVenture. Tip arrive early. Checking opened at 7.15am and then there is a full breakfast available. As I have very fair skin I was concerned about finding shade but if you arrive early enough it isn't an issue. We got... More

We had a fantastic day at Discovery cove. It does seem quite expensive at first glance but with the ultimate package you get 14 days entrance to Seaworld and Aquatica with free parking and for an extra $25 each you also get 14 days entry to Busch Gardens with free parking. The day starts with a complimentary photo taken on... More

We visited Discovery Cove in August 2016. A family of six, four adults and two children. When you arrive you queue to have your photo taken for a pass, you then queue again to get into the park and then again for your breakfast so it takes you about 30 minutes just to get into the place. Pose for a... More

100% worth the money. An incredible day with memories that will last a lifetime. All inclusive food and drinks all day, incredibly relaxing and enjoyable. Swimming with sting rays was one of my favourite things whilst on vacation. They have cheeky personalities and are so friendly and silky to touch. Swimming with a dolphin was a childhood dream and was... More
