Opened in June 2012, Freshwater Oasis enables Discovery Cove guests to view otters and marmosets at close quarters. The area is themed around a rainforest, with visitors able to wade or float in a number of "tropical" streams and pools. No glass separates swimmers in the area from marmosets that are housed on its island.

The previous tropical pool at Discovery Cove was replaced in 2011 by the Grand Reef, with the park having struggled to prevent saltwater from it leaking into the underground aquifer below.
