Interacting with dolphins has always been one of my biggest dreams. The Dolphin Bay was the best option for me as I do not swim and swimming with dolphins in the sea would not make me comfortable. The environment is very friendly, and the whole experience is really fun if you want to get really close to those beauties of... More

We chose the Dolphin Adventure, quite expensive but to us worth the money being pulled along by Jasmin. The ticket also included the day in the water park which was a good addition.

Waited many years to do this encounter and wasn't disappointed! We were welcomed and spent some very peaceful interaction with a wonderful creature and great staff, it was a great time spent and I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting a calm interaction experience in a small group. very informative also.

first a long introduction , this is needed to know wath to do once you meet the Dolphins ; the feeling you got wen leaving this attraction is worth every penny . Kissing a dolphin makes you feel totally lost ... like the first time kissing your girlfriend !!

It is just like a cheating center in palm jumeria. They charge 790 AED as a entry ticket. After that, they show you dolphin and that's all. Instead of that you should visit Dubai Creek and see Dolphin Show.

We did the shallow water experience with small children (22 months old and almost 3 years old). Was a fantastic time and enjoyed by all however the introduction was too long and tedious for smaller children. We saw most parents heading outside with their kids after the first ten minutes or so. Souvenirs were expensive (as expected) but there were... More

Keep in mind that Dubai excels in organising activities with surgical precision and professionalism. The result is total customer satisfaction!!! The dolphin encounter was worth every single dirham spent!! Excellent facilities, gear and briefings. Saying that our 8 yo old was the only one who enjoyed it, wouldn't be true...All of us enjoyed it thoroughly. The only down side was... More

What a special experience. A belated Christmas present we had been looking forward to for weeks. Dolphins and staff were incredible. When we went to get us photos the packages and individual costs are a complete rip off. Us$30 for one printed photo but they charge extra if you want a soft copy. Over 30 photos of you taken which...
