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

My kids and I had a nice time seeing the dolphins and the seals perform. It gave us a nice evening out and the photo opportunity also turned out a nice memory maker. My sons also got a dolphin balloon after the show and they haven't let that rest since. I'd recommend a visit to the dolphinarium anytime!
