This was one of the most memorable experiences. Swimming with fish and even dolphins is slowly becoming more common. However, Discovery Cove is an entire day of paradise. The service is so courteous, they make you feel like royalty. All you can eat food available throughout the day, come and go as you please!!

if you plan on doing any of the other activities don't buy tickets from a third party, we did the swim with dolphins and under water walk, i was unable to do the underwater walk but since we bought the tickets directly from them we got a refund but was told if it was from a third party a refund would not be possible. All in all it was a great day its nice not having to carry a wallet around and having good food and drink everywhere, the buffet was great the beer was good, it was very relaxing and a great experience

“Amazing life time experience! ”
Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

AMAZING DAY! where do I begin! We decided to visit Discovery Cove while in Orlando for our Honeymoon, swimming with dolphins was a life time experience that I always wanted to do myself. We booked our day months in advanced back in UK, need to book well in advance if you don't want to miss out as they only accept limited amount of people in a day, which is perfect, on our day it wasn't crowded at all just perfect. All food, drinks including alcohol and snacks are all included in the price you pay. It's worth getting their early so your not waiting and clock watching for your time to swim with dolphins. The Buffett breakfast which was amazing. I have gluten and dairy intolerance and they catered for me perfectly :-D had snacks given to me and at lunch they made me a burger which was gluten and dairy free they certainly know how to keep their guests happy. Anyway our swim with dolphin was just an amazing experience we spent 30 mins touching, playing, kissing and swimming with the dolphin didn't want the 30 mins to end, after your experience you get to see photos that was taken and choose a package, while these are not cheap how can you not purchase your amazing once in a life time experience. We also visited the aviary which was great had birds landing on us for feeding took great pictures :-D and we went snorkelling in the grand reef with sting rays and loads of different kind of fishes was amazing experience. We are so glad that we booked this day, was just the best amazing life time experience that we both will never forget. Highly recommend.
