    A sister park to Seaworld Orlando, Discovery Cove is an amusement park like no other, a place with opportunities for animal encounters and all kinds of water fun. You can experience all in one day a gorgeous tropical setting featuring a saltwater coral reef, white sandy beach, island, grotto, a fresh water oasis, a winding river and a large bird aviary.

    Serenity Bay is an 85 degree freshwater pool where you can relax and swim. Wander through Explorers Aviary which contains hundreds of tropical and exotic birds. Float down the Tropical River and wind your way through the aviary, past beaches, waterfalls and rainforest landscapes. Learn about and swim with bottle nosed dolphins in the Dolphin Lagoon. Head over to Grand Reef and snorkel with eagle rays and cross a rope bridge over a shark filled lagoon. Seaventure allows you to touch unique fish and velvety rays and, with the help of a diving helmet, go below the surface to the reef floor where you’ll see sharks up close through an 8 foot high panoramic window. There’s an adventure here for everyone.
