Buying Discovery Cove Other Experience Tickets

As well as the normal admission ticket, you can also enhance your visit to Discovery Cove with one or more 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 13 must be accompanied by a paying guardian. Even though this is an underwater experience you do not need to be Scuba certified, it is open to all guests.

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 12 must be accompanied by a paying guardian.

If you are celebrating a birthday or anniversary then you can purchase a Discovery Cove Celebration Package which includes a personal message being delivered by a dolphin.

Discovery Cove is often used as a venue for wedding proposals and they also offer a range of services including wedding packages. You can get more details by calling Discovery Cove on (407) 370–1408 or emailing [email protected].

There are a limited number of places available on these exclusive tours so you need to make sure you book up well in advance.

Discovery Cove Other Experience ticket options are:

Discovery Cove now offer a number of different add-on experiences. With the exception of the Trainer for a Day packages which include the single day Swim Package admission ticket, all other upgrades require a separate single day admission ticket to Discovery Cove.

All of the experiences have age restrictions in terms of minimum age limits. Also children you are above the minimum age may still require a paying guardian to accompany them.

Note that you will probably need to arrive at Discovery Cove quite early in the morning if you have booked multiple experiences as they only operate at certain times of the day and need to be scheduled on arrival.

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.
