There is only one place in Orlando where you can get a behind-the-scenes look at some of the land and sea’s most tropical animals while also enjoying thrills, relaxation and more. Discovery Cove is the perfect spot for families to become one with nature. Here are 5 reasons to visit Discovery Cove:
Swim with the Dolphins
One of the main highlights of visiting Discovery Cove is the chance to swim with an Atlantic bottlenose dolphin. The interactive adventure teaches guests about dolphin habits, behaviors, how they communicate, and the relationships Discovery Cove’s animal care specialists build on a daily basis. At the end you’ll get to swim with a dolphin either in shallow or deeper water.
Take a private 60-minute tour behind-the-scenes and meet some of Discovery Cove’s smallest animals including an anteater, armadillo, kinkajou, or sloth. The Animal Trek tour offers great insight into the wild’s littlest creatures.
The Grand Reef
The Grand Reef at Discovery Cove might be the closest you get to the real thing. Discover thousands of tropical fish and sting rays as you snorkel around the reef. You can also explore the water’s edge or hang out on the bridge above to see sharks swimming below.
In between swimming with the dolphins and discovering tropical fish at the Grand Reef stop by Discovery Cove’s free-flight aviary where you can take in more than 250 birds, some of which are as tall as four feet!
An All-Inclusive Day
Perhaps the best part about visiting Discovery Cove is that you can get everything you need with the all-inclusive day option. Your day includes a freshly prepared breakfast and lunch, snacks and beverages. Plus, a swim vest/wetsuit, towel, swim gear, including a souvenir snorkel and eco-friendly sunscreen.
