We took my daughter who was visiting us from the States. We all did the Royal Swim. It was superb. The Dolphin handlers were so informative and the Dolphins were like people and so playful!!!

I bought the Atlantis Dolphin Encounter for my husband and he loved it and said it was worth every penny! As a spectator you didn't get to see much but I didn't mind as we paid for me to go to the Atlantis Water park after. The person doing the dolphin experience gets free entry into the water park. I...

Absolutely fantastic and worth every cent. Great education on the dolphins and quite simply so much fun. Would do it again in a heart beat!

What a great experience! I felt like a 5 years old child... just couldn't stop laughing! :) There are three options of experience, we had the Atlantis Dolphin Adventure. The entire interaction takes place in deep water, but you don't need to be a great swimmer (i'm not!), just have to be able to tread water (and the clothes you'll... More

The interaction with the dolphins is great but very short. You do a couple of nice things with them and there is time to touch them. We booked the Royal Swim but everybody was doing the same things with the dolphins. Nobody checked which package you booked. It is difficult to advies wether or not it is worth the money

Not cheap but worth the money, try to make a reservation online and not during weekends, Watch the movie and explanations before swimming with the dolphins, our trainer Augustin was very careful and explained us lots of things we did not previously know about the dolphins, If possible avoid Chinese large groups since they are very, very noisy, they do...

If you have a family it was a bit too much to spend to play and swim with dolphin for 30 minutes but the location quite good but the heat was unbelievable very warm

Fantastic, there is nothing to dislike! It takes around one hour from start to finish, first they give you a 15 minute talk about the dolphins. They supplied water and towels, also wetsuits. We went for the full wetsuit to protect us from the sun but they also do vests. No hair bands, grips or sun cream but you can... More

I booked this before visiting Dubai. Shouldn't have as cheaper if book when staying in hotel in Dubai. Booked the middle package which was the deep water experience. Well worth the money to have a cuddle and a swim with a Dolphin. Down side is cost of photos the camera man takes and if you do this on your own... More
