Discovery Cove with Dolphin Swim

Our Guide to Discovery Cove Package

With your Discovery Cove Package ticket, you can see, hear and touch a world of amazing things as your senses literally discover a new world of experiences. From swimming with dolphins, snorkelling through colourful clouds of tropical fish and wading with friendly stingrays.

Discovery Cove Package

Those wishing to swim with Dolphins must purchase the Dolphin Swim ticket. If you just want to accompany friends and family who are swimming with dolphins, purchase the Non-Dolphin Swim Ticket. The Non-Dolphin Swim Ticket includes all the same elements, except the Dolphin Interaction Session.

  • Full day experience at Discovery Cove
  • 14 consecutive days unlimited admission to SeaWorld® and Aquatica®
  • Unlimited access throughout the day to The Grand Reef, Freshwater Oasis, Explorer’s Aviary, Wind-Away River, Serenity Bay and North Beach
  • Dolphin Swim Package also includes a reserved 30 minute dolphin swim (participants must be at least 6 years old; children 6-12 years must be accompanied by an adult who is also doing the Dolphin swim. There is no minimum adult to child ratio.)

The dolphin swim is the centrepiece of your visit. Spend 30 minutes, in groups of 8-10, getting to know your dolphin through hugs, kisses and ultimately, a one-on-one swim together through the lagoon. Then, you have the rest of the day at your leisure to soak up the unique, indulgent atmosphere. Wade with friendly stingrays and then discover the Explorer's Aviary, just beyond the towering waterfalls, where you can hand-feed tropical birds. Relax in the refreshing waters of the Resort Pool and float along the Wind-Away River. Or dive into The Grand Reef® and explore grottos filled with thousands of species of fish, rays and sharks. Freshwater Oasis® features swimming and wading adventures and face-to-face encounters with playful otters and curious marmosets. Designed with a rainforest canopy above and sparkling clear springs below, Freshwater Oasis is a natural fit within Discovery Cove’s tropical vibe.

As a reservation-only experience, which is limited to a capacity of 1300 guests a day, it's a rare opportunity to set your own pace. Offered on an all-inclusive basis with breakfast, lunch, snacks and drinks included, nothing is going to tax you… Life is good! It's all about a day of wonderful discovery and a lifetime of memories.
