Discovery Cove, SeaWorld Orlando's all-inclusive day resort, will now allow guests to swim with sharks, the company announced today.

Along with swimming with sharks, SeaWorld also broke the news of a ray feeding experience, both attractions will become available July 14.

SeaWorld first broke the news in an email to annual passholders.

From SeaWorld:
Have the experience of a lifetime by getting up-close and swimming with sharks. Your full experience includes a shallow water shark talk and training session with Discovery Cove’s expert aquarists. You will also have the opportunity to swim freely alongside several species of sharks in the deeper part of their habitat.

This experience can be added onto both All-Inclusive Dolphin Swim and Day Resort packages. All participants must be comfortable swimming in water.

The swimming with sharks experience will run you $85, while feeding the rays will go for $50. Both of these prices are in addition to the usual admission fee.
