New Animal Trek at Discovery Cove

Calling All Animal Lovers…

Guests ages 6 and older can add a 90-minute Animal Trek tour during their next visit to Discovery Cove. The new experience includes a private tour of the Explorer’s Aviary, where guests can feed and handle birds, and a special viewing opportunity in the Freshwater Oasis with the park’s family of playful otters. Each tour also includes the possibility of interacting with an anteater and a sloth (dependent on the animal’s interest), two of the park’s most popular small mammals. Woven into the experience are need-to-know facts about the risks of illegal exotic pet trade, bird longevity and the Species Survival Plan that is so important to Discovery Cove and its sister parks, aquariums and zoos. 

The experience starts at $79 per person, and guests ages 6 to 13 must be accompanied by a paying adult. Two 90-minute sessions are offered each day, with each tour limited to just 12 guests.
