Spring break with our daughters, 10 and 13. Park was sold out for the day (we reserved 3 wks in advance due to peak time) but never felt overcrowded or rushed. Arrived before the doors opened at 7:15 to be assured of an early dolphin encounter time (1st come, 1st served assigned times) as pm thunderstorms were in the forecast.... More

Early start can put people of but it is best to get there when it opens to get a choice of where you want to be. Feels like a million miles away from the hectic parks so a must just to chill out mid holiday

A lovely day. Swam with the dolphins. Very well organised and nice trainers that make it all very safe even for children. I would be happy to let a child take part. It seems like a nice place and they do a lot for the animals and rescue other animals too a bit like a RSPCA for sea life. Breakfast/lunch... More

Having swam with the dolphins and snorkelled with the large array of fish and rays this place is something else! From the minute you arrive nothing is too much trouble for the staff....all food and drink provided is top quality and very tasty. I'd highly re come d the sea venture tour of you have children over 10 as me... More

An amazing experience to be in the water with the dolphins. Swimming with Sting Rays and lots of other beautiful fish was fantastic and my kids couldn't get enough of it. A very well organised day with plenty of food/drink choices. Would highly recommend this day out.

I was really looking forward to going to discovery cove but the only word I can use to describe it was disappointed. The water is very cold as it has to be for both the fish and the dolphin but while the kids did not seem to notice while in with the dolphins they didn't enjoy the reef at all... More

A great day with the family. It is expensive, but as its all inclusive and restricts the amount of entrants, it's very relaxed. Fantastic memories, swimming with dolphins and huge stingrays.

Initially surprised at long line to get into resort but went quickly and staff was friendly and courteous. Breakfast was a BIG disappointment, long lines burger king quality food not much variety. Kids loved the snack bars which are not far apart and everything included. Facilities were very clean and landscape makes you feel like your are in Hawaii. After... More

The Dolphins were amazing....so gentle, you can stoke them, swim with them. Our Dolphin was a small dolphin called Kayleigh, she waved, jumped & showed us lots of tricks. The reef pool was good for snorkelling with the rays & fish. Sharks were behind the glass in this pool. A very relaxing day in the lazy river, lots of sunbeds... More
