Why e-tickets?

FloridaTix is an official authorised ticket broker for Discovery Cove tickets. This park no longer issues "real" tickets, only e-tickets.

Why should I pre-book for Discovery Cove?

Limited capacity so booking is essential!

Discovery Cove has limited capacity to 1300 people each day, and it is so popular that tickets sell out months in advance! It’s absolutely essential to pre-book your tickets to ensure you can visit on your chosen date.

Pre-book for the best price

By pre-booking your tickets you’ll make huge savings before you even travel to Florida!

Our Discovery Cove tickets are exclusive to UK customers and can’t be bought in the USA. This means we can give you unbeatable value compared with the price of ‘on the day’ gate tickets.

What food and drink is included with my ticket?

All-inclusive food, drink and snacks are included in the price of your whole day’s visit.

Food and drinks you can enjoy include:

  • Continental breakfast
  • Freshly prepared 3-course lunch, with vegetarian and healthy options
  • Desserts

  • Smoothies
  • Water
  • Soft drinks
  • Beer (for over 21s)

Can I use sunscreen at Discovery Cove?

No – normal sun creams are dangerous to the wildlife that lives at Discovery Cove. You will be given a sample of “animal-friendly” sun lotion when you arrive, and can buy more of this at the park.
