Discovery Cove is an exclusive park (Sea World’s little sister in Orlando).
The park is famous for dolphin swim, but has much more to offer.
The tickets may seem expensive, but it is only partly true. If the visitor is using all ticket benefits – during the visit and in other parks – Discovery Cove is a wise choice.
The exotic park next to Sea World is famous for its dolphins. However it is easily forgotten that the whole park is a great water adventure, for example you can snorkel at an artificial coral reef.
Also: it’s an all-inclusive park, so food and drinks are free – and unlimited.
During years of information about Florida we have revieved many questions about dolphin swim. Thats’s how we discovered one of many alternatives: a dolphin encounter at Discovery Cove.
When you, as one of a limited amount of visitors, have checked in the first part you see is Freshwater Oasis where you meet playful otters and marmosets (so called New World Monkeys).
The whole park is free-flight aviary, with a over hundreds of tropical birds.
Tropical River runs in a circle around the park area. Its is heated and you can flaot through different sceneries: beach, rainforest, waterfalls.
Serenity Bay is a tropical beach, a place where guests can relax.
