Situated in the heart of Orlando, Discovery Cove is an all-inclusive adventure in which travelers enjoy a one-of-a-kind opportunity to swim with dolphins, rays and tropical fish and hand-feed exotic birds. In addition to the park’s one-of-a-kind animal interactions and lush natural beauty,
Discovery Cove delivers unlimited access to an array of first-class amenities. Attendance is limited to approximately 1,300 each day. The all-inclusive Discovery Cove adventure includes unlimited time in The Grand Reef, where travelers can discover below-the-surface world teeming with sea life or they can snorkel in deeper waters as thousands of exotic fish and graceful rays swim around them. The Explorer’s Aviary leads travelers through a lush, tropical environment where they can hand-feed more than 250 exotic birds. The Wind-away River and sandy beaches with comfortable chaise lounges add to the paradise, but the centerpiece of the park, and the highlight of the guest experience, is the dolphin interaction. Accompanied by a trainer, groups of seven to nine guests wade into shallow water and become acquainted with their dolphin through hugs, kisses and rubdowns. Then, taking the adventure one step further, they interact with their dolphin in deeper water for a dorsal fin tow ride back to shore.
“Every guest at Discovery Cove has their own idea of what it’s like to actually swim with a dolphin,” said Stewart Clark, vice president of Discovery Cove. “When they find themselves face-to-face with one of the beautiful Atlantic bottlenose dolphins at the park, few events can rival the thrilling mix of emotions and excitement. Their time spent interacting with these amazing creatures is a singular experience that each guest treasures for a lifetime.”
