Exploring Florida will provide you with some of the most gorgeous sights on the planet. If you're down for a little exploring, this stunning cavern hidden in Florida is in an unexpected place.

From beachy views, turquoise hues, ruins & miniature rainforests, there is so much beauty to be found in the Sunshine State. While some are hidden in expected places, we don't expect to find enchanting caverns in a theme park.

However, the views at Discovery Cove feel natural & tropical —
whisking us away on a watery escape. The park is scattered with multiple pools that allow you to swim & snorkel with marine life, and even find hidden caves.

Behind the waterfalls of Serenity Bay, those who opt to explore the shimmering pools a bit more can discover a cavern amongst the mist. You'll almost forget that you're at a theme park.

Aside from this stellar cavern, Discovery Cove goers can also find beachy vibes & tropical sights - and you might not ever want to leave.

Those who like it a bit more wild can add on experiences that let you dip your toes in the water to swim with stingrays, dolphins, and other tropical fish that will whisk you away on an island escape, without having to fly anywhere.

Admission to Discovery Cove varies depending on the season, daily demand, & what add ons you decide to pop on to your day. Standard daily admission without any extras runs anywhere between $119 and $168.

Standard admission does include a lot though; you can go to the cave in Serenity Bay, lounge in a Freshwater Oasis, swim with exotic fish at The Grand Reef, laze all day at the Wind-Away River, & hang out with birds The Explorer's Aviary.

We're ready to swim with the fishes & hideaway in the captivating caverns at Discovery Cove!
