Freshwater Oasis now open at Discovery Cove – Swim and wade among otters and marmosets

Discovery Cove recently opened its newest addition to the park, the Freshwater Oasis. Freshwater Oasis gives guests a chance to get face to face with otters and marmosets in a relaxed shallow water setting.

Freshwater Oasis features wading water filled trails covered by a rainforest canopy. Guest will be surrounded by marmoset monkeys and playful Asian otters. With most of the water at waist-deep level or shallower, Freshwater Oasis is perfect for the whole family to explore the new addition.

Freshwater Oasis is included with admission to Discovery Cove, an all-inclusive tropical day resort where guests can swim with dolphins (added cost), snorkel with colorful fish and rays, hand-feed exotic birds and relax on pristine beaches, plus enjoy unlimited admission for 14 days to sister parks SeaWorld and Aquatica in Orlando.

Limited to approximately 1,000 guests per day, Discovery Cove requires advance reservations. Seasonal rates for Discovery Cove’s Dolphin Swim Day Resort Package start at $229 (rates for Day Resort Package without dolphin swim experience and guests ages 3-5 start at $149).
