Discovery Cove introduces new spa massages and animal trek options

Discovery Cove Animal Trek
A new Animal Trek can now be added to your day at SeaWorld’s Discovery Cove.

A day at Orlando’s most exclusive theme park can now be even more luxurious with the recent addition of optional Relaxation Massages and Animal Trek adventures at SeaWorld’s Discovery Cove.

The all-inclusive Discovery Cove has debuted its new spa massage and animal trek programs in time for the summer travel season.

Guests of the new Oasis Spa enter a special spa cabana that overlooks the waters of the park’s Freshwater Oasis for a 25-minute Relaxation Massage performed by a licensed therapist. Solo and couple’s massages are available to guests ages 18 and older. Spa sessions are available from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily and are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis as guests arrive at the park each morning. A 25-minute session starts at $59, but guests can reserve-back-to-back slots and upgrade to a 50-minute session if they prefer. Massages here are done with a special animal-friendly jojoba oil that has a similar pH to human skin and is non-allergenic.

Guests ages 6 and older can join a 9o-minute Animal Trek tour with Discovery Cove animal experts, who take participants behind the scenes to interact with many of the park’s birds and small mammals. 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, where participants have a special experience with the park’s family of otters. Each tour also 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 this tour will be full of photo opportunities.) Woven into the experience are need-to-know facts about the risks of illegal exotic pet trade, bird longevity and the Species Survival Plan. The experience starts at $79 per person, and guests ages 6 to 13 must be accompanied by a paying adult. There will be two 90-minute sessions each day, with each tour limited to just 12 guests.

The Animal Trek joins the Ray Feeding and Shark Swim programs introduced last summer. The park is also introducing 12 spacious daybeds, starting at $79 and able to accommodate up to four people. The park also offers private cabanas that come complete with tables and chairs, overhead fan, private locker, fresh towels, stocked refrigerator and a cabana host.

Discovery Cove only admits 1,300 guests each day, and a day’s admission includes breakfast and lunch, unlimited beverages and snacks, lockers, animal-safe sunscreen, snorkel gear, and parking. In addition, guests get unlimited admission to SeaWorld and Aquatica for 14 consecutive days around their Discovery Cove reservation.
