Discovery Cove, Orlando

4.7
#1 of 1,306 in Beaches in United States
Swim with bottlenose dolphins at Discovery Cove, a theme park that provides a more relaxing experience than the nearby mammoth entertainment complexes. You can interact with exotic birds in the free-flight aviary or explore the tranquil world of private beaches and heated outdoor pools. The park also contains a coral reef, where you can use the provided equipment to snorkel with thousands of tropical fish. To see the park's highlights quickly, take a boat ride down a tropical river running through the aviary and past sandy beaches, waterfalls, and rainforests. The park only admits a limited number of guests each day, so make your reservations well in advance.

  • Great experience! They kept admission to a limited number leaving plenty of space to enjoy the attractions. Having breakfast, lunch, food, drinks and snacks all included made for a care free day with no worry about getting my wallet for everything. The dolphin swim was Awesome, trainers were friendly, knowledgeable and friendly. I would recommend everyone be a good swimmer, the smaller children I saw around the park didn't get to enjoy the full experience. We attended as a family of 5, the youngest being 11, then 15, 19 and my wife and I in our early forties. Wonderful experience for my family!
  • Discovery cove is a fantastic place for a family vacation. We have a 9 yr old and an 18 yr old and they were both super happy they went. With free drinks and food all day long and several memorable activities is a sure place in Orlando to visit. The staff was super friendly and attentive and both the dolphin experience and the lazy river in our family opinion was the best we ever had. We are definitely will be back.
