The venue is inside Creek Park which charges a separate admission fee of 5 AED. There is a bad traffic jam at the venue on a Friday afternoon for the 3pm show. I bought 2 "VIP" tickets for central seats in the auditorium for 240 AED. There is a 25% discount for Citibank credit cards. The Dolphins and seals only... More

OK but way behind what Disney or SeaWorld offers. There are better places in Dubai to interact with dolphins if that is your thing. Quite small and only about 25% full when I visited, which probably sums it up.

This was one of the worst dolphinariums I ever visited. The music was so loud, show was crap, the most of the time was dedicated to draw which was by additional price, than the show itself. Animals were poorly trained. Kids had no fun at all.

A nice show for the family. The prices are suitable compared to a visit to the Atlantis. They do have though a swim with the dolphins experience. The best shows are the ones at 3 pm that doesn't interrupt your day. Make sure to buy the center tickets and avoid the first three wet rows.

The one thing different about this show is that this is setup in indoor environment. If you pick the right seat, you would be face to face with dolphins. Kids would love it and even adults too. The seals also do a great job of following instructions.

Dear SaurabhKotnala, Many thanks for taking the time to provide a review about your visit, we are so glad you enjoyed the show. The first three rows of each seating section are called ‘splash zones’, you may get a little wet but it's worth it to get so close to the dolphins & the action! Our shows do appeal to... More
