Buying Discovery Cove Other Experience Tickets

As well as the normal admission ticket, you can also enhance your visit to Discovery Cove with several extra experiences.

Discovery Cove Orlando Florida is renowned for its exclusive atmosphere and the chance to swim with a dolphin. You must buy your ticket in advance, you cannot simply turn up on the day and hope to get in.

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.

The Trainer for the Day packages include a Discovery Cove Single Day Dolphin Swim Package Ticket. As well as the regular dolphin swim you also get to experience an enhanced deep-water interaction with dolphins including a private photo session with two dolphins, dynamic behaviours in which you are pushed through the water by two dolphins, feeding tropical fish in The Grand Reef®, special meet-and-greets with tropical birds and small mammals, a behind-the-scenes tour of Discovery Cove support areas and shadow a trainer for the day. Guests must be at least 6 years old to participate and those under 15 must be accompanied by a paying guardian.

Discovery Cove Other Experience ticket options are:

Included in the normal Discovery Cove ticket prices is a 14 consecutive day complimentary pass to both SeaWorld and Aquatica that can be used either before or after the visit to Discovery Cove.

For an additional $25, this can be upgraded to an “Ultimate Package” which also includes Busch Gardens for 14 consecutive days plus free parking at all three parks. Note that the 14 consecutive days admissions to SeaWorld, Aquatica (and Busch Gardens Tampa) can now be taken either before, after or during the visit to Discovery Cove and must be confirmed at the time of booking.

It is recommended that you book up well in advance if you plan to visit Discovery Cove around main holiday times like Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Discovery Cove Other Experiences 2017 ticket prices

Discovery Cove has simplified their ticket offerings with a seasonal pricing structure and 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.

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.
