ORLANDO, Fla. (June 26, 2023) – With Shark Awareness Day on July 14, Discovery Cove in Orlando, FL, is celebrating July as “Shark Month” and offering shark enthusiasts and adventure seekers jaw dropping savings and epic ways to learn about these magnificent animals. Additionally, “Shark Month” themed content will be available throughout July on Discovery Cove’s Instagramand Facebook page.
Discovery Cove is an all-inclusive day resort and home to some of Florida’s most immersive animal encounters, including swimming with dolphins, snorkeling among thousands of tropical fish and rays, strutting with flamingos, encountering playful otters, and swimming with several species of sharks.

Looking for adventure? Only 16 guests per day get to experience the park’s popular upgraded Shark Swim Program. This exclusive interaction has limited daily inventory to provide guests with an intimate and awe-inspiring shark encounter accompanied by Discovery Cove’s expert Aquarists, who share intriguing facts about the sharks in the habitat. Guests wear a snorkel and mask to enjoy a deep-water, free swim alongside blacktip reef, nurse, zebra, and bonnethead sharks, and the thousands of tropical fish who also reside in The Grand Reef. Discovery Cove donates 5% of the proceeds from the Shark Swim Program to the Guy Harvey Foundation, which conducts scientific research and hosts educational programs aimed at conserving the marine environment.
