There was a large crowd waiting to get in and once we took our seats we were greeted by no air conditioning and lack of enthusiasm. The dolphins performed some great stunts and showed a lot of playfulness, but I left with an overall sad feeling for them afterwards.

I really enjoyed the experience, I found the owner and staff passionate about what they do, I swam with kimbo and it was an extremely spiritual experience, I would definitely go again.

So arriving about 45 minutes before the show and the building is a mass of people as you walk through the door. I make my way through the people and eventually find the cashier where you buy the tickets and then follow the line back to the entrance. I discover this is where all the lines kind of meet between... More

Went there with children (5 and 3). Kids loved it all along. But 45 euros for the 4 of us is a bit too much for a small 45 mn show.

We've been there with my little child (7 y.o). We really enjoyed the show, while we didn't reach the place with expectations about the pool size or duration. We just focused on the dolphins and their tricks... Worth the money! Recommended to reserve tickets online (a little bit cheaper) and if you want to swim and take pictures with a... More

Good show about 40mins long. It's about half an hour from golden sands. Although pool is a bit small for 5 dolphins. Would recommend if you want to kill half a day.

Pure torture, noone has the right to do this to another living creature. The tank is small and rusty and the animals are obviously not happy nor healthy! It is a disgrace!

The place used to be crowded, it is recommended to buy ticket online. The tickets should be printed but I used my phone and the scanner took it. 5 dolphins with funny attractions. The childrens loved it.

Brilliant! Just wished the show was longer and wasn't focused around young children. A lovely day out in Varna the dolphins are a must to see in Bulgaria. However, it is difficult to hear the lady speak through her microphone and sifting through the different languages to understand what's going on is annoying. Sometimes I think she forgot to repeat...
