Special underwater marriage proposal at Discovery Cove, SeaWorld's sister park

See also

Discovery Cove is a sister park to SeaWorld Orlando that offers a boutique experience, including close-up animal encounters like feeding birds, swimming with stingrays, snorkeling near sharks. You can also walk around under the water, getting face to face with colorful schools of fish, while doing the SeaVenture experience. One person who did SeaVenture with her boyfriend recently got a special surprise: an underwater marriage proposal!

As you can see in the photo at left, it's possible to communicate even if you can't quite speak. Halid Shokunbi popped the question via the written word 14 feet below the water to his longtime girlfriend, Kyla Brown. Happily, she accepted, and now the Chicago couple is headed for the altar.

You too can pop the question in a unique way or have a dolphin deliver a love message on your behalf at Discovery Cove with their special packages. The romantic offerings are just in time for Valentine's Day.

Pocket Guide to SeaWorld, and How to See Disney World Like a Local are two of my Kindle theme park guides. My newest book is 25 Tips for Visiting Disney World With Babies, Toddlers, and Young Children. Part-Time Princess is the first romance novella in the Fantasy Land series, set with an Orlando theme parks backdrop. Ever wanted to be a travel agent? My five step Kindle book gets you started fast.
