Guests visiting Discovery Cove can now book new Animal Trek experience

Guests visiting Discovery Cove can now book a new 90 minute Animal Trek Tour. The tour, with Discovery Cove animal experts, is available for guests ages 6 and older. Guests are taken behind the scenes to interact with many of the park’s birds and small mammals.

This 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. There’s also a special experience with the park’s family of otters. Each tour includes the possibility of interacting with an anteater and a sloth, two of the park’s most popular small mammals. (All interactions are dependent on the animals’ interest in participating, but in general the tour is full of photo opportunities.)

The Animal Trek tour starts at $79 per person and guests ages 6 to 13 must be accompanied by a paying adult. There are two 90-minute sessions each day and each tour is limited to 12 guests.
