The UAE's Only Dolphin & Seal Show & Much More! Over 30,000 visitors per month get up close & personal to graceful dolphins & playful seals at Dubai Dolphinarium' action-packed shows. These interactive extravaganzas showcase these amazing animals' astounding skills. Visitors watch in wonder as the dolphins & seals perform incredible acrobatics, dance, sing, juggle & even paint. Daily swimming with dolphin sessions allow visitors a once in a life-time experience to interact with our amazing mammals, they are suitable for swimmers from 5 years onwards & advance booking is essential. We are home to the Creek Park Exotic Bird Show, the only exotic bird show in the region. Our shows are an action-packed experience with over 20 different species of birds & parrots. Guests become part of the action as the birds interact with the audience and fly overhead throughout the show. The regions only mirror maze is a dizzying labyrinth where visitors are challenged to find their way through a baffling & disconcerting maze of mirrors. Once inside the mirrors, they won't be able to work out the way to go & will have to use their sense of touch & adventure to work out the way. Our under the sea themed adventure soft play is set over three floors, kids can slide down a helter-skelter, explore & climb through tunnels, bounce on a trampoline, play in the ball-pit & much more! Wet, wild & totally wonderful

When you are in Dubai with kids or even elderly, This place holds enough entertainment for all. A good show and some fun added. The place can be booked at a lower price on mondays for those who want to save a few bucks esp if you are with family. but the program is definitely worth it

You can visit only if you had never been to any Dolphin show yet. Not worth the price & time you spend there.

The Dolphin show was nice but the morning show is somewhat shorter less attractive than the last to e when I was at the afternoon show. Or maybe it is the season (summer vs winter full house).

Dear katazaza Many thanks for taking the time to provide a review about your visit. Our 11am show is shorter than the 3pm & 6pm shows which is also reflected in the price.

We enjoyed swimming with the dolphin session at Dubai Dolphinarium. We were lucky and there was no crowd in our time so we enjoyed the dolphin interaction to the max. You can book private interaction session in advance. We've been to Atlanis Dophinarium. Each place has its own taste. I liked the outdoor atmosphere at Atlantis and I liked the... More

The show begins first with a magic show followed by sea lions show and at the end comes the highlight..the Dolphins. All the animals are well trained. The show is a bit overpriced for 45 minutes but the kids would love it. Overall quite entertaining.

The building is run down, plaster filler and damp walls visible in the entrance foyer. Staff looked bored and weren't really approachable, friendly or bothered if you looked like you needed help on entrance. We went to the additional Aladdin and Acrobatics show. Aladdin was tedious - again the 'actors' didn't seem interested or even pretending to smile for the... More

Better to purchase entry tickets thru online, specially when you come there in weekend or public holiday. There are different prices of entry tickets according to seat area. You can find food store, bird show, maze room, 5D & 7D cinemas, souvenir store, and so on. The entrance will open 30 minutes before the show.

Fun time with kids. If you are planning on visiting, go overboard and get a good seat. Swimming with the dolphins will help make it a lifetime experience.
