Swim among dolphins and rays, feed colorful birds and explore a coral reef in this recreation of a tropical ocean world in Orlando, Florida.   

Discovery Cove® brings the ocean’s wonders to your fingertips. Swim with dolphins, snorkel among tropical fish and walk below exotic birds. The theme park is owned and operated by SeaWorld® Parks and Entertainment. Take advantage of its location in sunny Orlando, Florida and enjoy the resort’s warm and welcoming water.

Meet Discovery Cove’s stars in the Dolphin Swim Experience at Dolphin Lagoon. Use hand signals to encourage dolphins to complete tricks before going for a swim alongside them. The resort provides wetsuits to ensure that you are properly dressed to comfortably interact with the dolphins.

Snorkel among thousands of fish and rays in The Grand Reef®. Watch sharks swim below you or swim alongside rays as wide as your arm span. Discover hidden islands and secret grottos scattered around the reef.

Not all the creatures in Discovery Cove® are from the sea. Head to Freshwater Oasis®, which features sparkling springs beneath a rainforest canopy. Come face-to-face with adorable otters and marmosets.

Sit back and enjoy the ride in the Wind-Away River. This leisurely waterway takes you along sandy beaches, lush rainforests, cascading waterfalls and a spooky underwater cave.

Get close to feathered friends in the Explorer’s Aviary, where colorful birds fly and chatter all around you. Hold out your hand with some fruit and see what bird lands for a snack.

If you want a home base during your visit, rent a cabana for the day. These little oases contain lounge chairs, seating, snacks and lockers.

Your ticket to Discovery Cove® is all inclusive, covering food, drinks and equipment rental. It also includes unlimited same-day admission to SeaWorld® Orlando and Aquatica, SeaWorld’s Waterpark™. You can also get more deluxe packages, such as the Dolphin Swim Experience or Trainer for a Day program. Parking is included in the ticket price. The park is open every day of the year.

Daily visitor numbers are limited at Discovery Cove®, meaning that it never feels too crowded. Make reservations in advance to ensure your entry. Check the website or call to confirm current age requirements for exhibits, particularly Dolphin Lagoon.
