Experience an all-inclusive day at Discovery Cove for less with our 2024 Discovery Cove Package Early Booking Offer. The Discovery Cove Ultimate Package offers the complete SeaWorld Parks experience.

Our guide to Discovery Cove® Ultimate Package - 2024 Early Booking Offer

Welcome to an exquisite tropical island paradise. Discovery Cove® gives you the unique opportunity to swim and play with a beautiful Atlantic bottlenose dolphin, snorkel amongst tropical fish, glide with rays and relax on white-sand beaches.

Enjoy a whole day at your leisure to soak up the unique, indulgent atmosphere of Discovery Cove. Embark on an underwater adventure in Discovery Cove's Grand Reef where you'll snorkel among canyons and come face to face with venomous lionfish and sharp-toothed reef sharks (safely behind massive panoramic windows). Discover the Explorer's Aviary, just beyond the towering waterfalls, where you can hand-feed tropical birds, relax in the refreshing waters of Serenity Bay and float along the Wind-Away River. Freshwater Oasis features swimming and wading adventures and face-to-face encounters with playful otters and curious marmosets.

Select the Ultimate Dolphin Swim Ticket for a unique opportunity to spend 30 minutes, in groups of no more than 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.

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 at Discovery Cove Orlando.

PLEASE NOTE: Those wishing to swim with Dolphins must purchase the Ultimate Dolphin Swim ticket. If you just want to accompany friends and family who are swimming with dolphins, purchase the Ultimate Non-Dolphin Swim Ticket. This includes all the same elements, except the Dolphin Interaction Session. You must be at least 6 years old to swim with dolphins. Children between 6-12 years old participating in the dolphin swim experience must be accompanied by an adult who also is participating in the dolphin swim experience. There is no minimum adult-to-child ratio, so one adult can accompany more than one child.

FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions for Discovery Cove® Ultimate Package - 2024 Early Booking Offer

Do I have to book a date or can I leave it open?

Because Discovery Cove limit attendance to 1300 people per day, we have to book a date for you. During busy periods such as Easter and Summer, we would require at least 2 months' notice in order to secure you a place.

Do you need to be an experienced swimmer for Discovery Cove?

No, life jackets are provided and you don't have to go out of your depth.

How long is the dolphin swim?

The swim will consist of a 10-15 minute introduction with the trainers and a 30-minute in-water group session with the dolphins. This will be followed by an optional 30-minute debrief for any questions.

Does the Discovery Cove Ultimate Package also include a pass to SeaWorld, Aquatica and Busch Gardens?

Yes, the Discovery Cove Ultimate Package includes 14 consecutive days of unlimited admission to SeaWorld, Aquatica and Busch Gardens, the complete SeaWorld Parks experience! The 14 days start the first time you visit any of the parks including Discovery Cove.

When should I arrive?

Park operating hours are 8.00am to 5.30pm. Check-in begins at 7.15am. We recommend arriving early so you can enjoy a full day at this beautiful park. By arriving early, you can take advantage of the free breakfast, plus you'll be first in line to choose your dolphin swim time, which is allocated on the day on a first come first serve basis. 

Is the dolphin swim available to guests with disabilities?

Discovery Cove can accommodate guests with disabilities who are able to manoeuvre themselves with limited assistance (or with the aid of a personal assistant) during their dolphin experience and in the various wading locations.
