Our Discovery Cove Adventure

Our day spent at the Discovery Cove, ranks up there with one of the best days of our lives, very close to our wedding day…skydiving…no kidding! It was a childhood dream come true and yet another adventure to cross off our Life List. This is exactly how life is supposed to be lived, work a little, play a little. It is not always about how much money we have, it is about letting go of the need for it and just living our lives as we should and believe me the funds will come, as they have continuously for us.

If you have never accomplished this and you have always wanted to…DO IT! Do not waste another moment thinking about it, instead make a reservation, pay the price and have the best day of your life!

We got a great deal, but even without the great deal, this experience is worth the cost. Our cost was only $199 each, but it also includes unlimited admission to your choice of Sea World Orlando, Aquatica or Busch Gardens Tampa. The $199 is now only available to Florida residents but there are a few days still available for $229, all the way up to $319, depending on the date you choose.

It would have been worth it for just the dolphin experience but then you add to it the time with the stingrays floating in between our legs, snorkeling with the salt-water fish, including sharks and barracudas. Now throw in a relaxing, warm float down the Wind-away River and relaxing in Serenity Bay. But…wait, we still were not done. It also includes a great breakfast and a wonderfully delicious prepared lunch, then you add snacks, drinks, even beer and you have the makings of a very fulfilling day. They do charge a hefty price for the frozen alcoholic drinks, but the plastic glasses were included. Then refills would only be $5, but we each had our one Pina Colada and were content with it.

It is up there with one of the most exhilarating experiences of our lives, but we also found it very spiritual. These mammals are huge and strong but they glide through the water with such grace, it is amazing. The intelligence they exhibit while obeying each command, but at the same time, keeping their own personalities is spectacular.

Our dolphin was Diego, he was born at the San Diego Sea World, and his mother’s name was Sandy…a bit cheesy when you think about it. He is about 8’ long and weighs about 500 lbs, one of the shorter, chunkier ones of the bunch but is playful and such a ham to the cameras. We were surprised when we first petted him; his skin is soft and somewhat mushy, kind of like our own skin but wetter. We were instructed to be very light with our touch since they are hyper sensitive to touch, and never touch their eyes or blow holes.

This is a memory that will forever be in our minds and our hearts. Life is exactly the way you believe it to be, no more, no less. We invite all of our readers to believe in all of your dreams and do all you can to bring them into your own reality. The wait is over for all of our dreams; they are happening now and from this day forward, no more excuses!
