Five Things You Might Not Know About Discovery Cove

Snorkel, snooze, swim and smile in the lush landscape of rocky lagoons, waterfalls and pristine sandy beaches at Discovery Cove. Here are five things you may not know about the park:

1. You can walk underwater

You can don an innovative dive helmet to explore The Grand Reef on underwater walking tour, SeaVenture. Stand among the schools of fish and rays and even come eye-to-eye with sharks (don’t worry they are behind a glass divide!) as you travel across the reef floor.*

2. There are thousands of fish in The Grand Reef

There are over 10,000 animals representing over 160 different species of tropical fish, coral and stingrays in this 2.5-acre underwater world.

3. Serenity Bay is heated!

This freshwater pool is kept at a relaxing 29°c – perfect for exploring the different depths, waterfalls and grottos!

4. Discovery Cove is a Certified Autism Center

Discovery Cove was the first all-inclusive day resort to be designated as a Certified Autism Center. Staff have been specifically trained to assist guests with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and their families, as well as this, sensory guides and pre-visit planning resources are also available to ensure everyone has a wonderful time at the park.

5. You can interact with exotic birds

The Explorer's Aviary is home to more than 250 exotic birds. You can hand-feed them and interact with birds as tall as four feet. Enter the aviary’s lush, tropical environment by way of the park’s beaches or drifting under the refreshing waterfalls in the Wind-away River.
