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.
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.
Discovery Cove attendance is limited to 1300 guests a day, so all bookings require a reservation. Book well in advance to avoid disappointment! When processing your booking, please ensure you detail the exact date of your planned visit to Discovery Cove.

Any minor under the age of 18 years participating in the dolphin swim experience must have a “Minor” waiver completed by a parent or legal guardian. If a parent is not present at check in, they will need to complete a liability release form prior to the day at Discovery Cove and those accompanying the child will need to bring the completed form as well as a photo copy of the parent’s Driving License or Passport to verify their signature. Please contact us should you need a form sent with your Discovery Cove documents.
Those wishing to swim with Dolphins must purchase the Ultimate Dolphin Swim ticket. If you just want to accompany friends and family who are swimming with dolphins, purchase the Ultimate Non-Dolphin Swim Ticket. This includes all the same elements, except the Dolphin Interaction Session. You must be at least 6 years old to swim with dolphins. Children between 6-12 years old participating in the dolphin swim experience must be accompanied by an adult who also is participating in the dolphin swim experience. There is no minimum adult to child ratio, so one adult can accompany more than one child.
