Discover the ALL-NEW Ultimate Animal Experience! Turn your day at Discovery Cove into an epic zoological adventure when you add this exclusive, half-day program to your Signature Dolphin Swim Package.

Alongside a Discovery Cove Zoological Expert, you (and an intimate group of no more than 8 guests) will enjoy:

  • An exclusive, private, guided snorkel session in The Grand Reef prior to park opening, in our 1-million-gallon saltwater habitat, where you will swim with thousands of tropical fish and rays, guided by a Discovery Cove Animal Specialist.
  • An enhanced second dolphin interaction with 2 dolphins, including a private photo session, in addition to your Signature Dolphin Swim.
  • Special meet-and-greet with a tropical bird.
  • Special meet-and-greet with a small mammal.
  • Exclusive behind-the-scenes tour to learn more about our world-class animal welfare practices and animal care facilities.
  • A private guided tour of Explorer's Aviary where you’ll hand-feed hundreds of exotic birds.
  • A private otter enrichment session in Freshwater Oasis. (This experience is not offered with any other program!)
  • Tour length is approximately 5 hours, with free time all afternoon to enjoy the rest of your day in paradise.
Due to timing, the Ultimate Animal Experience cannot be combined with Shark Interaction, Ray Feed, or Animal Trek.

All Guests must have shoes, water shoes or flip flops for behind-the-scenes tours. Professional photographers present for all dolphin interactions. Photo packages available for additional purchase.
