All 3 kids said its the best day they ever had ... we did the dolphin swim, sea venture, snorkeled the grand reef, aviary. Everything was just great. Son has... More

This was our second time at Discovery Cove, and we loved this visit as much as the first. The dolphin experience is amazing, and the snorkeling is fun. The beach areas were clean, comfortable, and beautiful. I would, however, like to respectfully suggest an improvement regarding the purchase of photos. After our dolphin swim, we were urged to select our... More

A lovely day relaxing with the family, snorkelling in the lazy river and on the reef, watching the fish and (behind glass!) sharks. With limited admission numbers, Discovery Cove was a lot less busy than the other Orlando resorts we visited, and we had no problem finding well placed sun loungers or seats in the restaurant. With food and drink... More

The is a beautiful place to visit for some very unique experiences. I loved the fact that the price you pay is all- inclusive. You needn't worry about food, drinks and snacks once you purchase your ticket. Also, towels, use of equipment, lockers, and water noodles are all included. You can even set your ID card up to be able... More

This is a must do. Experience and photos very expensive but we'll worth it. The opportunities to swim with Dolphins and snorkel with seaside in a safe environment is not to be missed. The all inclusive restaurant at lunchtime is carnage and takes way to long.

Well what can I say, this was probably our favourite and the most special thing we did on our two week trip to Florida. Now I know that it's outrageously expensive, but I didn't feel like we had been conned for our money. Upon arrival you are signed in and given a little map and itinerary for your day, with... More
