Although an expensive day trip this was definitely worth the money, a memorable experience for the whole family, the highlight being a swim with the dolphins. It's a nice chilled day away from the frantic pace of the main parks, and the fact that towels, wetsuits and snorkels are all provided is an added bonus. Probably the only downside is the expensive "official" photographs, especially as you have already paid a large entrance fee.

What a joy, after several days of having dollars gouged at other resort attractions, to enter the serene, secure, welcoming and highly professional atmosphere of this all-inclusive day out. The dolphin and ray features are outstanding. Not heap, but worth every last cent.

This place was so beautiful! I was nervous about spending too much money on a one day adventure for myself and 2 kids but it was worth it! We arrived very early as reccomeded and it was already busy. They treated you so good. Breakfast was real good and lunch was even better! I reccomed asking for a morning swim with the dolphins as the afternoon thunderstorms came in and they cancelled some of the PM swims. The snorkel area was just amazing! We were in the water all day! loved the lazy river and monkey island. Also, love that you get a t 14 day pass to aquatic and sea world with the dolphin swim package!!!

What a fabulous day. We did not do the dolphin swim but the day was amazing and we spent lots of time snorkelling in the reef. We were not expecting it to be so fantastic. Polite staff, great food and drink included in price, and great value as ticket includes entrance to seaworld, aquatica, and Busch gardens too.

We loved Discovery Cove. Everything was perfect! They provide all food, drink (including alcohol), towels, lockers, and snorkel gear (except fins). I reserved four (4) months in advance and was able to get a rate of $199 pp. This did NOT include the dolphin swim but did include the 14 day flex pass to Seaworld and Aquatica. If you like to snorkel or want to float 30 minutes around the best lazy river in the world, this is your place. It will not disapoint. They even gave us a free group photo. Recommended!!!
