A lovely place to visit although on the expensive side. Complex close to beach. Nice to see dolphins under water at the cafe. Show was very good and you sit quite close as small venue.

Sea life viewing is always a good experience , but thats about it, no real shows or displays of Sea lions , whales , pinguins, or dolphins doing spectacular acrobatic stunts like you would see in Sea World back in the States. Although they do offer live interaction with the dolphins where your able to swim with them.

My personal opinion is that animals should be free and live in their natural habitat, but.... So the Dolphinarium in Varna may not be the fanciest and the most modern one, but it is very nice.

In Dolphinarium you could spend an hour in the pool with dolphins for 100 leva. It's very interesting not only for the children, which sparkling eyes are following the dolphins' moves, but also for everybody inside the place.

I swam with the dolphins here. I was told about them and could ask questions and we performed many activities together including them pushing me round the pool. The experience lasted nearly an hour. The dolphins seemed happy and were genuinely enthusiastic about playing volleyball with me, they were both poised, excitedly waiting for me to return the ball. The... More

This dolphinairum is really bad, there is nothing educational about the show and the dolphins looked really sad and bored. I am sure they were only performing so they got fed.
