Indulge your love for animals and experience even more exclusivity as a Trainer-for-a-Day.

If spending your day around a pod of playful dolphins sounds like a dream job, well, it is. It's an all-inclusive Discovery Cove day with some exciting extras:

  • An enhanced deep-water interaction with dolphins including a private photo session with two dolphins
  • Dynamic behaviors such as the “double-foot push,” in which the guest is pushed through the water by two dolphins
  • Behind-the-scenes tour of all Discovery Cove support areas
  • Shadowing a trainer for the day
  • Feeding tropical fish in the The Grand Reef®
  • Special meet-and-greets with tropical birds and small mammals
  • Plus unlimited admission to SeaWorld Orlando® and Aquatica, SeaWorld's Waterpark™ for 14-consecutive days surrounding your Discovery Cove reservation. (Busch Gardens® can be added for an additional charge.)

All day long, you'll also have unlimited access to The Grand Reef®, Explorers Aviary, Serenity Bay, Wind-Away River and Freshwater Oasis®.

A breakfast, lunch, and all of your snacks and beverages are included in your package, along with self-parking on arrival and any rental gear you need in the course of the day.

If you are experiencing our Trainer for a Day program, please plan to meet with your dolphin trainer at 8 a.m. in the Guest Reception Lobby (check-in should occur before this time). Trainer for a Day participants must be in good physical condition and at least 6 years old.  For children between the ages of three and five please refer to the day resort package for appropriate rates. All participants or their legal guardians are required to sign a liability release form before beginning the program. All participants under the age of 13 must be accompanied by a paid "Trainer for a Day" adult. You may call 407-513-4600 for more information about this program. Prices are subject to change.

The Grand Reef’s innovative experience, SeaVenture, is an underwater walking tour where, while wearing a dive helmet, you’ll feel right at home under the sea. Find up-close excitement around every corner, each step yielding a new discovery. SCUBA certification is not required.
