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

We visited the Dolphinarium for a dolphins, sea lions and magic show this evening. The show was entertaining and the dolphins were superbly trained to do things intelligently. The way the dolphins played basketball, danced in water and followed instructions of their trainers was truly professional. Visitors to Dubai should see this show as it offers a unique presentation showing... More

An average place, charges for everything except for the toilet facilities, Bird show and Dolphin show just copies of other such shows shown all over the world for such a long time. Cinema was just a 10 X 10 room covered in tent material. Don't expect too much and you will enjoy I guess.

Finding a Dolphinarium at the Creek Park was a pleasant discovery. We had been searching for a good day to spend with Family. The Park has good attractions and this being the Best of them All. The Crowd, the tickets and the flow is all easy to manage, however, the tickets are a bit overpriced. May be for the fact... More

This was something I was concerned about when I first read Dubai was home to captive dolphins. As a massive animal lover the first thing that went through my mind was that these babes should be in the ocean and not forced to do tricks like the poor killer whales at seaworld. However, that said, the Sheik of Dubai is... More

The dolphin and seal show is a lot of fun and very entertaining . Ideal for families. It costs 100 dhs for an adult ticket and 50 dhs for a child's ticket (2-11 years). For an extra 20 dhs each you can get a VIP ticket but honestly it doesn't make much of a difference because the arena is fairly... More

We enjoyed our trip - better than we expected. Reminds us of how great dolphins are and we've seen a few shows like this before. Not as many opportunities to take photos as elsewhere but the kids loved it

Really a Good Show to for the kids. This was my second visit to Aquarium, I felt couple of items like human driving the dolphins were not included this time. The ticketing and inspecting staffs were rude and arrogant, that was a first experience for me in dubai.
