Discovery Cove
Home to some of the tropical world’s most charismatic creatures,the Discovery Cove theme park features opportunities for guests to lounge on the white sand of Serenity Bay, observe tropical fish and stingrays at the Grand Reef, snorkel through cavernous grottos, and float along Wind-Away River to an exotic bird aviary. One of Orlando’s most exclusive theme parks, Discovery Bay permits only a limited number of guests each day into its all-inclusive tropical paradise.

The Basics
Everything at Discovery Cove is included in the admission price, including breakfast, lunch, snacks, wetsuits, snorkels, towels, and sunscreen. Those who want to upgrade their day can do so by booking private cabanas or immersive experiences, like exploring the Grand Reef with a specialized dive helmet, swimming with sharks or dolphins under staff supervision, feeding stingrays, or playing dolphin trainer for a day. The entrance fee also includes unlimited admission to SeaWorld Orlando and Aquatica for 14 consecutive days around the date of your Discovery Cove reservation.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Daily attendance is limited, so it’s a good idea to book your visit well ahead of time.
  • Bring your own swimsuit, as well as sunglasses, a hat, rubber pool shoes, and dry clothes to change into at the end of the day.
  • Swimmers are not permitted to wear jewelry (with the exception of wedding bands) for the safety of Discovery Cove’s animals.
  • Guests with limited mobility can visit various wading areas and take part in dolphin experiences; specially designed outdoor wheelchairs are available for rent.

How to Get There
The easiest way to reach Discovery Cove is by car. The entrance to the park is off of Central Florida Parkway, and parking is included in admission. The park also provides free transportation to and from SeaWorld Orlando.

When to Get There
Discovery Cove is open daily from 9am to 5pm, with check-in starting at 7:15am. The park is designed as a full-day, all-inclusive experience, and guests wishing to participate in multiple add-on experiences should plan to arrive as soon as check-ins begin in the morning. During summer and holidays, tickets often sell out as early as two months in advance.

Swimming at Discovery Cove
While Discovery Cove centers around the water, even non-swimmers will have plenty to do, from relaxing on the beach to feeding tropical birds in the aviary. Life vests are also provided, allowing those who are less comfortable in the water to still enjoy the park’s waterways.
