Discovery Cove: Freshwater Oasis now open

Discovery Cove, SeaWorld's daylong tropical retreat, has officially opened its new Freshwater Oasis.

Guests now can explore watery trails of the Oasis, which is home to otters and marmosets and topped by a rainforest canopy.

Freshwater Oasis replaces a saltwater reef that had been leaking into the area's underground aquifer.

The attraction, near the front of Discovery Cove, is included in regular admission.  Advance reservations are required, and attendance is limited to 1,000 guests per day.

Discovery Cove is known for its swim-with-the-dolphins program, snorkeling offerings and animal encounters. Cost of admission varies with the day of the week and other factors.
