We really enjoyed our visit in Dubai Dolphinarium. It is a good entertainment for kids. The cost is not expensive. There's more about it. You can read it here http://frugalexpat.com/2014/10/10/awesome-experience-at-dubai-dolphinarium/

The Dolphin show is very interesting especially for small kids. These are the tips to enjoy it more: 1) Arrive at-least an hour before the show as it is very difficult to find a parking spot. 2) Even if you have a ticket reserved for the Dolphinarium,the Creek Park Entrance fee is separately charged and expect a queue there. 3)...

Overpriced and expensive for an hour show. This was boring. The property looks oldish. I felt sad for the dolphins seeing the place is too small to confine them. More suitable for kids than adults. Overall it's ok but can be skip attraction if you're in Dubai.

Me and my partner went to the dolphins show last year and we left amazed with the show performed by this talented animals. Quite cheap compared with other entertainment shows involving animals, specially dolphins, around Dubai and also the planet.

I bought a discounted ticket from Cobone and came a little late to the performance and missed some parts of the seal show. The Dolphinarium's decor looks a little older and smaller than I expected. While the dolphin performance was great, it felt a little sad knowing that they are confined only to such a small space.

The second part of the show is ok. However, I was not impressed. For people who will see it for the 1e time .. It's ok. It is for sure not the level you can have like in Florida, neither for the infrastructure. It looks like a bit forgotten.
