I love marking items off my #bucketlist Growing up in a small town I didn’t really have a lot of options. Now as an adult and blogger I get to travel and have amazing experiences for work. I’ve always wanted to swim with dolphins and going to Kissimmee for the #RockYourVacation event I had the chance!
ABOUT DISCOVERY COVE
Discovery Cove is a unique reservations-only, all-inclusive park. The park restricts attendance to about 1,300 guests per day and so is able to provide a more intimate, resort-like experience unlike any park in the world today. Guests are able to participate in the park’s signature 30-minute Dolphin Interaction, snorkel with tropical fish and rays in The Grand Reef®, wade beside marmosets and otters in the Freshwater Oasis®, hand-feed parrots, toucans, and other exotic birds in the free flight Explorer’s Aviary, and relax in the large resort pool and swim along a tropical river. Other amenities include freshly prepared breakfast and lunch, unlimited snacks and drinks, free equipment rentals and a souvenir snorkel. Plus the Discovery Cove Day Resort Package includes unlimited admission to SeaWorld® and Aquatica, SeaWorld’s Waterpark™ in Orlando (Busch Gardens® Tampa can be added for an additional charge).
I did the Dolphin Swim Experience and it’s truly a memory that will be dear to me till I’m old and grey sitting in a rocking chair and telling my grandkids about the experience.
You start out by going into the dolphin lagoon, which itself is beautiful. Your in the middle of Kissimmee and don’t even realize it. Your in an oasis. A magical place that has super soft sand, animals of every sort, and unlimited food and drinks.
It’s a 30 minute interactive adventure. You get to hug, kiss, swim, and take a ride of a lifetime with a bottle nose dolphin. The trainer tells you all about dolphin behavior and communication.
Because attendance is limited to about 1,300 guests a day, ensuring no overcrowding and extraordinary guest service. Discovery Cove is truly a one-of-a-kind experience.
