See, hear and touch a world of amazing things as your senses literally discover a new world of experiences. From swimming with dolphins, snorkelling through colourful clouds of tropical fish and safely eyeballing sharks and barracuda, Discovery Cove packages offer a brush with the natural world that's never to be forgotten.
The dolphin swim is the centrepiece of your visit; here 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.
The Grand Reef is a marine experience like no other. Immerse yourself in waters teeming with sea life… where thousands of exotic fish and rays await you. Everyone is invited to wade, swim or snorkel freely through this vibrant reef. You never know what you’ll discover. Safely share the water with exotic eels, lionfish and sharks. Explore water-side trails and bridges to one of the reef’s many islands. Wade with friendly stingrays and then discover the Explorer's 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 Wind-away River. Freshwater Oasis features swimming and 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.
