DC does not come cheap but I have no regrets booking the day here. After the craziness of the theme parks, DC provides equal amounts of fun and amazement whilst giving respite from the crowds, the noise and the break neck speed. The lazy river...More

Discovery cove is amazing value for money because not only does the ultimate swim include the dolphin swim, but access to four other parks including SeaWorld and all the parking! Amazing staff, lovely family environment with a magical feel to it. I highly recommend going!

They supply the Sun Tan lotion which is formulated to be animal friendly. As you’ll be snorkelling in salt water I wouldn’t worry about your hair.
