Welcome to Discovery Cove, an exquisite tropical island paradise. Restricted to a capacity of about 1300 guests a day, it’s a rare opportunity to set your own pace and relax away from the hustle and bustle of traditional attractions.
Swim with a dolphin (Swim option only, non swim tickets will not include Dolphin encounter), snorkel amongst tropical fish, glide with rays and relax on white sand beaches. Hand feed exotic birds in the colourful aviary, paddle along the crystal clear tropical river and soak up every moment of this blissful day. Put away your watch, kick off your shoes, and enjoy our indulgent experience to the full.
Life is good! It’s all about a day of wonderful discovery and a lifetime of memories.
Dolphin Lagoon (Swim with Dolphins)
The dolphin swim experience is the centrepiece of your visit. You’ll begin by receiving an introduction to these beautiful animals in a secluded cabana. Then, with one of our trainers, you’ll head down to the Dolphin Lagoon in groups of no more than eight, into the shallow turquoise waters to start your dolphin swim experience. Here, you’ll meet and play with a dolphin for 30 minutes, getting to know each other through hugs, kisses, rubdowns and, ultimately, a one-on-one swim together through the lagoon.
Surprises abound. Families can seek discoveries along the water’s edge or cross a bridge to see sharks swimming below. Play hide-and-seek with thousands of beautiful fish, from small colorful wrasses to velvety rays. Further out in the reef, stunning habitats create the feeling of swimming right alongside sharp-toothed reef sharks safely behind glass. You can even take paths and bridges to the reef’s islands and hidden grottos as they delve into the reef from above, around and below.
Now Open is Freshwater Oasis®, an all-new attraction featuring wading adventures and face-to-face encounters with playful otters and curious marmosets. Designed with a rainforest canopy above and sparkling-clear springs below, Freshwater Oasis® is a natural fit within Discovery Cove’s tropical vibe. You can relax and explore. You’ll wade, wander, and float in the water-filled trails. No matter where you turn, you’ll find endless discoveries.
Just beyond a spectacular waterfall, you’ll find a series of towering Free-Flight Aviaries. Here, you can soak in all of the sights and sounds as you encounter hundreds of tropical birds nose-to-beak while they feed right out of your hand.
Ride the soothing currents of a tropical river as it winds past sandy beaches, through a dense rain forest, beneath the rocky terrain of cascading waterfalls, and through an underwater cave. Glance down as you travel and take in the wonders that exist beneath the surface of the crystal-clear water.
