This was on my wife bucket list and it did not disappoint. From the good food and beverage selection, to the many interactive things to do, a great experience. Wife enjoyed the heated areas and her first snorkeling experience. She has a hearing problem and the instructors at the dolphin swim made sure she was involved and understood everything. Although...

This was a gift for Valentine's Day for my finance with the dolphin swim on our trip to Orlando. We had a great day, the people were wonderful, the food and drinks were wonderful and the dolphin adventure was, a absolute dream come true! We arrived at 7:30 and stayed until we were told we had to leave because they... More

The main reason we went there was the dolphin encounter, but oh there is so much more to it. It is all inclusive. Great breakfast, great lunch. Any time you get thirsty or want a snack just go to any of the many snack stands. The last river is unlike anything you have ever seen. It feels like a real... More

The snorkeling was the best. We had a cabana and oo what a way to go. Meaghan was great and was continuously checking on us to make sure we had all we needed and then some. Shaded area was great for those who did not like the sun so much

My brother had mentioned we simply had to visit discovery cove if staying nearby, tickets were't the cheapest but I'm so glad we went. Honestly had the best day on our most recent trip to Orlando out of the whole holiday. We were advised to visit early at 7.30am for breakfast and were greeted by fresh coffee and a delicious...

We visited on a Saturday and it rained in the afternoon. The staff was very friendly & helpful. If it's your birthday celebration or another celebration they supply a red lanyard & all the staff wish you happy birthday! So nice! We paid for the complete package. So glad we did. The Sea Venture was amazing, my favorite part was... More

The great reef is fantastic, my advice, go for a wet suit, obviously the water is cold as its meant to be at sea temp for the fish, so much better in a wetsuit, and you feel less worried about a fish swimming up your shorts! Ensure you wear plenty of the sunscreen, I reapplied the supplied dolphin friendly sunscreen... More
