Buying Discovery Cove Florida Residents Tickets

Discovery Cove often run special promotions for Florida residents.

Admission is strictly limited to around 1000 guests per day and you must buy your ticket in advance, you cannot simply turn up on the day and hope to get in.

You can choose between two main packages, either with or without the dolphin swim. Children must be at least 6 years old to participate in the dolphin swim and those under 13 must be accompanied by a paying guardian.

The SeaVenture diving experience is a separately ticketed attraction and can only be purchased in conjunction with a regular Discovery Cove single day package. Guests must be at least 10 years old to participate and those under 14 must be accompanied by a paying guardian.

Discovery Cove Florida Residents 2015 ticket prices

Discovery Cove has simplified their ticket offerings with a seasonal pricing structure but it is worth checking alternative dates as you can often get the same deal for less money on another date.

There is no separate pricing for adults and children as such but children under the age of 6 cannot participate in the dolphin swim. Children aged 6 to 12 can swim with a dolphin but only if accompanied by an adult.

Children under the age of 3 are admitted for free but still need to make a reservation.

At first glance the prices seem high but bear in mind the price includes all food and drink for the day plus 14 days admission to both SeaWorld and Aquatica.

These prices are the standard ticket prices you would expect to pay at the gate (unless stated otherwise). Prices do not include local taxes and tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable.
