Discovery Cove Package

Discover a whole world of experiences at Discovery Cove, from swimming with dolphins to wading with playful rays and snorkelling with a rainbow of brightly coloured fish! As an added bonus, admission to SeaWorld Orlando and Aquatica are also included in the ticket price.

Welcome to an exquisite tropical island paradise. Discovery Cove® gives you the unique opportunity to swim and play with a beautiful Atlantic bottlenose dolphin, snorkel amongst tropical fish, glide with rays and relax on white sand beaches. You have the whole day at your leisure to soak up the unique, indulgent atmosphere of Discovery Cove.

Embark on an underwater adventure in Discovery Cove's Grand Reef where you'll snorkel among canyons and come face to face with venomous lionfish and sharp-toothed reef sharks (safely behind massive panoramic windows). Discover the Free-Flight Aviary, just beyond the towering waterfalls, where you can hand-feed tropical birds, relax in the refreshing waters of the Resort Pool and float along the Tropical River. Freshwater Oasis features swimming and wading adventures and face-to-face encounters with playful otters and curious marmosets.

If you select Discovery Cove Dolphin Swim Ticket, the dolphin swim is the centrepiece of your visit at Discovery Cove Orlando. 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.

PLEASE NOTE: Those wishing to swim with Dolphins must purchase the Dolphin Swim ticket. If you just want to accompany friends and family who are swimming with dolphins, purchase the Non-Dolphin Swim Ticket. This includes all the same elements, except the Dolphin Interaction Session. You must be at least 6 years old to swim with dolphins. Children between 6-12 years old participating in the dolphin swim experience must be accompanied by an adult who also is participating in the dolphin swim experience. There is no minimum adult to child ratio, so one adult can accompany more than one child.
