Away from the concrete this is a nice place to hang out. The Dolphin show is good but I wish it included the audience more with it. Yet a good experience

Recently visited dubai dolphinarium. Its ok for kids and toddlers. Show is short though the dolphins put up a good show. Its is recommended if discount tickets can be arranged or a coupon (carrefour receipts have a discount of 25%) is available .the front few rows are splash zone.

This was a bit out of the way and was excellent value for money. The dolphin show was surprisingly good and at 100AEd cheap, lasting 45 minutes. Worth a trip out. The bird show was a rather disappointing especially after the dolphin show. The mirror maze was overpriced AEd25!!!!

Me and my wife went on a date to the Dubai dolphinarium and it certainly didn't disappoint. You had the lovely sea critters like the seals doing their tricks which make you feel like a child again followed by the thrills and spills of their big co-stars the dolphins. The full crowd was on the edge of their seats and... More

We booked our tickets before travelling, when we arrived thought it was a bit naughty being charged to enter creek park and having to pay for everything inside. However, the dolphin show was good value for an attraction In Dubai, our children loved the show and the chance to throw a ball for the dolphins to win a prize. We... More

It was a wonderful show put together by some lovely and adorable sea creatures. The Seals and Dolphins are amazing, loved every bit of the show. It can be enjoyed by young and old. its a bit sad that it goes on for only 45 mins....few more minutes would be nice :-)
