Although I wasn't there to swim with the Dolphins, my youngest one did. I was very pleasant as the numbers are restricted so it's not crowded. Meals, snacks, soft drinks & beers are complimentary for all guests (subject to age) which means you can spend the day at your own pace as you can have a meal whenever you feel... More

Discovery Cove is one of our favorite places to go to celebrate birthdays! It is a wonderful combination of relaxation on the sand, snorkeling, swimming, bird watching eating, and quality family time. Check-in is early in the AM. The welcome can enter is a beautiful space where you get to meet a sloth! The check-in process is quick and smooth.... More

The water was clean and so was the hole place. You can swim with a lot of small fishes, like little sharks! It is also possible to check some dolphins. We just loved! It is a must go, specially in the summer when it is hot. Enjoy it like a Caribbean beach.

By far the best family experience in Florida. Discovery cove is like your own little paradise. The lazy river was so much fun. The boys aged 6 loved the animals and birds in a controlled environment so they could actually see things. Well worth the money.

We had a great time but was not impressed with the dolphin pictures that I paid $150 for. Unlike the photos they show on the website, ours had tons of people in the background photo-bombing and it ruined the pictures, which quite honestly was supposed to be the highlight of the trip afterwards. The photographer was not positioned correctly for... More
