What’s Included in the Discovery Cove Ticket Package?

Your day at Discovery Cove

Visit Discovery Cove for a crowd-free, relaxing all-inclusive day and uncover a whole world of different experiences. Swim with dolphins, wade with mysterious rays, snorkel among thousands of exotic fish, hand-feed tropical birds and relax on pristine beaches.

As part of the Discovery Cove ticket you will receive one day’s admission into Discovery Cove in Orlando between 7:30am and 5pm on a pre-booked date.

Dolphin Swim at Discovery Cove

If you have always wanted to swim with dolphins, this is an unforgettable experience you won’t want to miss! The dolphin swim is the main attraction at Discovery Cove, but it is also an optional extra to the package. You’ll get to swim and play with bottlenose dolphins in their tropical lagoon. Learn all about their behaviours and antics in an hour-long interactive session that will last in your memory long after the day is over.

Discovery Cove Dolphin Swim

The dolphin swim consists of a 10-15 minute introduction with the trainers, followed by a 30-minute group session with the dolphins. You do not need to be an experienced swimmer to enjoy this experience, life jackets are provided and you do not need to go out of your depth should you not wish to do so. In order to ensure everyone’s safety, all participants must be able to comprehend safety instructions in English. Children must be aged 6 or over to take part in the dolphin swim. Children between 6 and 12 years old must also be accompanied by an adult who is also participating in the same dolphin swim experience.

Included Experiences at Discovery Cove

  • Snorkelling with Fish and Rays: Snorkel with a variety of underwater animals in The Grand Reef, including thousands of tropical fish in this stunning coral reef habitat.
  • Hand-Feed Tropical Birds: Hand-feed parrots, toucans, and other exotic birds in the free flight Explorer’s Aviary. This is a hidden treasure, where you can witness hundreds of colourful birds soar above and around you.
  • Up-Close Animal Encounters with Otters and Marmosets: The Freshwater Oasis is home to some face-to-face encounters with playful otters and curious marmosets. Enjoy a unique experience where you can swim alongside the otters in a dynamic habitat, that the otters share with colourful fish. As you wade the waters of the Freshwater Oasis, be sure to look up for a chance to watch the marmosets exploring the treetops and bamboo bridges of their island playground.
  • Winding Rivers and Waterfalls: Relax in the large resort pool at Serenity Bay, a fabulous 85-degree freshwater bay with beautiful waterfalls. You’ll also have the opportunity to swim along a tropical river, as it winds past sandy beaches, through a dense rainforest, beneath the rocky terrain of cascading waterfalls, and through an underwater cave.
  • White Sand Beaches: The perfect place to take some time to unwind in the Florida sunshine. You and your family will have access to lounge chairs and hammocks on the beaches and throughout the resort.
  • Flamingo Walk: Each morning catch a glimpse as Discovery Cove’s flamingos, as they journey from The Grand Reef, across the white sand beaches in front of Dolphin Lagoon, and then to the courtyard near Laguna Grill. Get your cameras ready, you never know when the perfect selfie moment will happen.
