Very expensive day for a family but it is a 5 star resort and everything is included in the day. All food and beer. Swimming with dolphins is one ticked off the bucket list. Photos and videos after are very expensive but with it if you have the money

We have visited florida before but this was our first trip to discovery cove. It was amazing and loved by the whole family. The settings are lovely and we visited in october and it was very quiet. The snorkling was great its cold at first but dont let this put you off as you soon get used to it. We also did the dolphin swim which was unforgetable. It may seem expensive but we did have tickets to seaworld busch gardens and aquatica included so we thought it was value for money. Will definatly go back on our next visit to orlando. We were a party of 4 adults and 3 kids aged 1,6 and 7

What a day, swimming with manta rays, fish and dolpins. Costs a lot, but you'll get a day to remember with unlimited food and drink (including alcohol). I found swimming and touching the manta rays actually better then the swimming with dolphins (the dolphins do look a little exploited, as they have to spend a long time with each group, just makes me a little uncomfortable about the whole thing). They advertise that you can have birds land on you in the aviary, but we didn't see any of that while we were there. Also, it's very oriented around getting more money out of you to buy the DVDs and photos, so beware! But, overall, an amazing day we will never forget.

We enjoyed swimming with the rays in the grand reef and the marmosets and birds encounters.
Onthe negative side, the quality of food served for lunch is clearly decreasing since the last time we were here. Breakfast was great though.
