I have only had the pleasure of visiting Discovery Cove once, and that was to cover the opening of the Grand Reef in 2011 for my former blog. Discovery Cove is a once-in-a-lifetime day in lush tropical surroundings. Your base package includes breakfast, lunch, unlimited snacks and beverages! Complimentary parking, wet suits, snorkel gear, sunscreen, lockers and towels. Your base admission also includes unlimited enjoyment of the Grand Reef, Serenity Bay, Explorer’s Aviary and Wind-Away River. One day admission to Discovery Cove also entitles you to unlimited admission to SeaWorld Orlando and Aquatica Waterpark for 14 days surrounding your visit. For an additional fee you can add on the dolphin swim experience and/or the SeaVenture underwater walking tour. Discovery Cove is an all-inclusive reservations-only park which entertains about 1,300 guests per day. It is truly a high-end experience everyone should enjoy at least once.
