We were in Dubai for only 2 days on a stopover for sydney to London. After whittling down the endless list of things we could do, swimming with dolphins made it and we weren't disappointed. While it can seem pretty expensive, it isn't exactly the sort of thing you do everyday. If you want to buy pictures, they cost 80... More

Did the dolphin encounter with our 3 year old twins. The trainers were excellent especially as our son was very nervous. Because of their calmness and encouraging words both our kids had the most amazing time!! It is very expensive but well worth it and you get nearly 30mins in the water. During our time we had many opportunities to... More

I was unsure of this before I visited as I wondered if the dolphins were ok in captivity. While I'm still uneasy after the experience (they should be in the ocean, right?) at least these dolphins seemed very well cared for, and the operation was extremely professional. Aside from scuba in the open ocean, it's probably the best way to... More

It was a really nice experience you got to learn a bit about the dolphins as well as having a play with them. We did the Royal Swim which was 30mins and in that time we did two exercises were the dolphin pushed and pulled you a hug and a kiss so it went pretty quickly. Only wish you could... More

My partner and I booked the "Dolphin Adventure" and highly recommend it. We went separately at the recommendation of some here on tripadvisor so that we could photograph each other and save on photos, however the professional photos were so great we bought them as well anyway so may as well have done it together! Be ready to fork out... More

I didn't actually swim with the Dolphins but my daughter did and I just stood at the side taking photos. She had a fab and fun time and would highly recommend this.
