A good place to visit if you are into animal show and if you bring kids and families and have quite some times to kill.The dolphinarium is a indoor facility,fairly small but cozy with aircondition . Do not be misled by the modest entrance because once you re inside you'll be entertained by the skillfull dolphins and some side attractions... More

The Dolphins are truly excellent acrobats. This is the only Dolphin show I have seen in my entire life and so I can't make a comaprison here but from what I have seen, I am truly impressed by the way the seals and the Dolphins listen to their Human instructors and perform as they are told!

We went to the Dolphinarium on the last day of our holiday. We were initially going to go for the 11am show but the entertainer vouchers said 11am shows weren't valid on Mondays and Fridays so we opted for the 3pm show. The location of the dolphinarium was in Creek Park which is very beautiful! The tickets for the show... More

We drove from Abu Dhabi to the Dolphinarium on the 14th June 2014, and ended up taking the 6 pm show, as we just missed the 11 am show by 30 minutes. The show started, not with the dolphins, but an aerial performance, by a very talented artiste. It was impressive but we came there to see the dolphins....... Ok,... More

We visited the dolphinarium. We loved it! One of the seals ended up going for a swim just before the dolphins were about to perform. This turned out not to be planned...resulting in them having to abandon the show. They got everyone to go & see the bird show whilst they got the seal out. Luckily..within 30mins we were able...

It was a nice experience .. My kids enjoyed it very much. Compared to our last visit to Singapore this was the only attraction I could rate much higher than the Singapore attractions. This was very good, i would like to go back and watch it once more if I get a chance.
