The nature is crazy about its creations, the man is too. Who could ever think that one time or another anyone will be able to swim and play with stingrays, dolphins and sharks like an amphibian or a mermaid (not taking into account divers and thrill seekers)? This is made possible at the Discovery Cove in Florida, Orlando, and much more than that. At the Discovery Cove in Orlando, a sister park of the SeaWorld, a thousand of guests daily gets up close and personal with animals. They swim with dolphins and stingrays through a multicolored cloud of tropical fish and touch and feel exotic birds. They explore marvelous tropical landscapes and snorkel coral reefs with sunken ships. They can swim under a waterfall and get into the free-flight Aviary, home to over thirty species of exotic birds and come eye to eye with sharks and barracudas. Waterfalls at either side of the river entrances prevent birds from flying out of the Aviary.
Definitely, dolphins are the highlight of the Discovery Cove in Orlando. There are three lagoons, each housing four groups of six guests and three instructors. Each group pf visitors spends approximately thirty minutes with dolphins, petting them, learning signals and signs and cavorting with these clever and friendly animals.
A tasteful and masterful thematic planning of landscapes at the Discovery Cove in Orlando allows the most fascinating strolls, trips and marine adventures. The Tropical River winds its way through a variety of unique landscapes: an island beach, a tropical rainforest, an underwater cave, waterfalls, sandy beaches and rocky lagoons.
