Discovery Cove is not your typical theme park experience. Visitors, who are limited to 1300 per day, explore the all-inclusive day resort by interacting with the residents amid the lush foliage and pristine waters of their habitat. If hand-feeding exotic birds, snorkeling alongside schools of tropical fish, personally interacting with dolphins and having play time with otters is your type of adventure, Discovery Cove should be added to the top of your bucket list.
With such a limited number of guests welcomed per day, advance reservations are not only encouraged, they are required. Plan to book at least one month in advance, especially during the summer months or holiday time periods. The park opens at 8:30AM with check-in beginning at 7:30. Your adventure runs until 5:30PM and includes all the fun, food and frolick you can handle. When not mingling with dolphins, marmosets and rays, you can enjoy your freshly-prepared meals, unlimited snacks and free equipment rentals. Pristine beaches beckon you to relax and soak up the sun. For an additional fee, daily cabana rentals are available. Admission also includes lockers, wetsuits, towels, shower facilities, parking and complimentary entry photo. A day at Discovery Cove is not just a walk through the park; it is truly an adventure in paradise.
