Discovery Cove sun cream rubbish

We had a great day at Discovery Cove today!

Knew couldnít use our own suncream and have to use thereís due to animal safety, we smothered it on 3 times, about every 2 hours, itís so thick we all look like ghosts afterwards.

End of the day we all so burnt.

I was watching a vlog by Anni Stores ( I think Anni is a Dibber too) a couple of days ago and she got sun burnt too. She did exactly the same as you but mentions the day after that using their factor 30 is not compulsory and that it has happened to other visitors.

I always wear a rash vest for this reason. We spend so much more time in the water there and uncovered than we normally would. I don't think any sun cream would stop me burning for that amount of time in the Florida sun

I wore the wet suit last time. I found the rash vest and life jacket rubbed the cream off my shoulders and I ended up burnt.

I watched Anniís video and it was her face that got burnt, thatís my worry.

We have used our own sun lotion on our visits to Discovery cove after guest services confirmed it would be ok due to allergies.

I am a Dibber! 😃

Oh it was awful - Iím so conscious about my skin and not getting burnt that I was a bit cross I did, despite topping up frequently.

If we were to visit again, Iíd definitely apply my own ahead of time but probably use theirs on top aswell just to create an Ďanimal friendlyí barrier.

Iím a redhead so Iím aware of how easily I burn, we normally use the Soltan Once and itís great, works most of day and never get burnt.
I think this stuff was more like white paint then sun cream! Put plenty on but didnít work very well and my nose actually blistered afterwards.

People saying on here you can use your own yet signs everywhere there saying you canít as can effect the wildlife. So if everyone starts using their own whatís that going to do do wildlife?

We did have a great day there though.
