Grand Reef opening June 10th at Discovery Cove


Seaworld Parks and Entertainment has stepped up this year with nine brand new capital investments company wide in 2011 and a few more coming in 2012. One of the nine investments coming to the chain is The Grand Reef, opening June 10th at Discovery Cove. The park has been hard at work to put this new attraction together to add even more fun to the all inclusive park.

Guests can choose whether to stay in shallow waters and discover sea-life just below the surface or explore even further as snorkel as fish and Rays swim around them. Families can also play “hide and seek” with tons of beautiful fish and rays, as well as feel as if they are swimming side by side with sharks and venomous lion fish. Guests will be separated from the sharks and lion fish by glass.

Along with the expansion of Discovery Cove, they are also adding SeaVenture, an underwater walking tour. Guests will gear up and walk along side the sharks and venomous lion fish (again, protected by glass). Guests will be surrounded by schools of fish as they explore the floor of the sea. This underwater expereience is available to Discovery Cove guests for an estimated additional $59.

Back in April when we discovered the Shark Deep Dive would be closing at Seaworld to make a move over to Discovery Cove to become SeaVenture, we were originally told by an over the phone representative The Grand Reef would be opening June 11th. Looks like we’ll be getting an early treat from Discovery Cove.
