SeaVenture at Discovery Cove

The Grand Reef’s innovative experience, SeaVenture, is an underwater walking tour where, while wearing a dive helmet, you’ll feel right at home under the sea. You don't even have to have SCUBA certification.

Find up-close excitement around every corner, each step yielding a new discovery.

Easily climbing down a ladder and setting foot on the reef floor, you’ll come eye-to-eye with sharks through a full, 8-foot-tall, 21-foot long panoramic window. During the journey, you’ll experience one-on-one touches with unique animals, schools of fish and velvety rays, exotic-looking lionfish hiding under a dock – and even touch unique sea life found along the way.

The adventure ends with schools of fish feeding around the divers with the massive open reef as the backdrop. SeaVenture is a once-in-a-lifetime, undersea experience available for a nominal fee.
