My visit to the Dolphin Bay was an experience of a lifetime, especially since it was my first time to see the beautiful creature. The Dolphin Bay is located at quite a distance from the Aquventure Waterpark - so kindly ensure that you reach on time. Though there are buggies available pretty frequently that will take you to Dolphin Bay.... More

The most amazing experience of my life. I absolutely loved every minute of it. Our trainer was a girl from Kent who was delightful to work with. She made you feel safe and well informed at all times. I want to do it again and would in a heart beat.It was all first class from wet suits to information prior... More

As others have mentioned, the Royal Swim is not cheap by any stretch of the imagination and whilst the ticket does include 'free' entrance to the Aquaventure Water Park, you cannot use/eat at the outlets at The Atlantis The Palm - they stop you as it is for residents only. Needless to say, this leaves very few and over-priced food... More

The trainers have a really good rapport with the Dolphins, and a very good knowledge of them. Their main concern is for the animals welfare, and everything is done with this in mind. we thoroughly enjoyed meeting the Dolphin, and learning all about her. Worth every penny.

My partner and I split up the activities as she wasn't a confident swimmer. She did the basic dolphin encounter while I did the royal swim. This is a very cool experience to be up close and touch a dolphin if you have never done so. However, it really is only a short amount of time you have with the... More

We booked a dolphin encounter and do not regret it one bit. Had a great time. The water was nice and cool on a hot Dubai day, and the whole experience was memorable. We bought a few photos of the experience, which weren't cheap, but still worthwhile at AED80 each.

Dolphin experience was good and the place itself is well run with good facilities. My real problem is with the pricing which is scandalous. Having paid close to £200 for a dolphin experience I learn that we have to pay either £8 or £13 for a locker in the water park. This fee is NON REFUNDABLE and its the same... More
