Discovery Cove has been voted the ‘Best Amusement Park in the World’ by TripAdvisor users.

Not just the best park in America, but in THE WHOLE WORLD!

We asked people who have been there why they think Discovery Cove is the best, and here are some of the reasons you gave us:

It’s like spending a day in paradise

Imagine a place where you and your family can swim with dolphins, wade with mysterious rays, snorkel among thousands of exotic fish, hand-feed tropical birds and relax on pristine beaches…. Now you can stop imagining, because I’ve just described Discovery Cove!Feeding Birds at Discovery Cove

Kids absolutely LOVE it!

Splashing around in safe, shallow water, floating along the lazy river, meeting friendly dolphins, no crowds to get lost in, as much food as you can eat all day long…. There’s no way you can even think about getting bored here!

It’s a place where your dreams can come true

So many people dream of swimming with dolphins, and Discovery Cove is one of the best places in Florida to do it! Just remember to choose the Discovery Cove “Swim” tickets when you make your booking.

Swimming with Dolphins

They go out of their way to make sure you have the best day EVER

We constantly get great feedback about the staff at Discovery Cove – they always go that extra mile to make sure you have an absolutely perfect day.

The staff there are fantastic! My fiancé and I paid to swim with dolphins but there were some kids in our group that caused problems and ruined it a bit for us. The trainer taking our group saw this, so she called us back and gave us an extra 10 minutes with the dolphins – it was incredible!! Absolutely made our year – so much so that we’ve booked our tickets for our honeymoon next year already.

You’ll get to meet loads of adorable animals

Want to swim with dolphins? Discovery Cove is the best place in Florida to do it. Don’t want to swim with dolphins, but love getting close to the animal world? In the Conservation Cabana you can meet, pet and learn about all kinds of adorable animals – not just marine creatures but furry, feathery or scaly chaps like kinkajous (google them – it’s worth it!), anteaters, armadillos, tortoises and owls.

It’s a great place to go with someone you love

Want a perfect experience to share with your one true love? Lying on the pristine sandy beach, snorkelling together through shoals of colourful fish, tropical birds flying free around you and maybe perching on your hand for a treat….

It’s also a lovely place to head if you’re on your honeymoon, and the absolute PERFECT setting for a proposal!

You can really relax thereBeach at Discovery Cove

In amongst all the hustle, bustle and craziness of the Florida theme parks (and we wouldn’t have them any other way, hey?) it’s lovely to know you’ll be spending a day somewhere that you can just take it easy. Plus – no queueing! They only let in 1300 people per day, specifically so that it doesn’t get crowded.
