Discovery Cove Day Only Experience - 2025 Early Booker Offer

Add a piece of paradise to your Orlando Holiday with our Discovery Cove Day Only Experience Ticket. Discover a whole world of experiences from swimming with dolphins to wading with playful rays and snorkelling through The Grand Reef® teeming with thousands of colourful fish.

Book a 2025 Discovery Cove Day Only Experience today and enjoy incredible savings of up to 42%* on Dolphin swim tickets.

Explore a lush landscape of rocky lagoons, waterfalls and pristine sandy beaches. At Discovery Cove, you’ll feel as if you’ve stumbled upon an undiscovered tropical island. Snorkel through The Grand Reef® teeming with thousands of colourful fish and rays. Wade and float in Freshwater Oasis®, and gaze at the otters at play. Let colourful birds eat out of your hands. For a dream come true, step into Dolphin Lagoon™ to be greeted by a beautiful bottlenose dolphin. You can move at your own pace through this sun-soaked oasis, doing as much as you want, or as little as you’d like

The dolphin swim is the centrepiece of your visit. You’ll spend 30 minutes, in groups of no more than 10, getting to know your dolphin through hugs, kisses and ultimately, a one-on-one swim together through the lagoon. Then, you have the rest of the day at your leisure to soak up the unique, indulgent atmosphere.

As a reservation-only experience, which is limited to a capacity of 1300 guests a day, it’s a rare opportunity to set your own pace. It’s all about a day of wonderful discovery and a lifetime of memories at Discovery Cove Orlando. Check-in opens at 7.15am, waterways open at 9.00am and the park shuts at 5.00pm. We recommend arriving early so you can take advantage of the free breakfast, plus you'll be first in line to choose your dolphin swim time, which is allocated on the day on a first come first serve basis.
