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

I went with my five year old girl and for her it was the best thing in Dubai. She just loved the dancing, jumping and singing dolphins. There were six dolphins with three trainers performing the show. The ticket price is very reasonable. The seal show was also nice for her. There are two types of shows; the regular dolphin... More

The dolphinarium is a lovely place to go for the young and old. It can be a good weekend getaway for the entire family too. The show starts at 1100 and try to get early to get the best location for seats. The show starts with a small act by 3 sea lions which is very entertaining. Following that, there... More

Dubai Dolphinarium is a lovely family activity, as the show is great for kids & adults alike. The Dolphins do some great tricks and the seals make a quick appearance too. Book your seats online and try to sit in teh middle section for the best view. The first few rows have to expect to get wet during the show.

My daughter loved it (and so did I), it was well worth every penny unlike the other attractions in Dubai which are costly and there isn't much to do.

Going to the Dubai Dolphinarium has been an amazing experience, guaranteed to have a wonderful time with your children, family and friends. They have exciting shows along with personal interaction with the dolphins and seals! And the shows are bilingual in Arabic and English, so you don’t miss out on any of the interesting facts; a great way to make... More

If you buy tickets for the show through either Wonder-bus or the Big-Bus tours then you get a small discount. We bought the VIP tickets and are a family of 4: 2 adults, 1 child and 1 infant. Expensive I should say as everything in Dubai is! Entrance is through the Creek Park Gate 1. Beware that the dolphin show... More

It was a real awesome experience to visit the Dolphinarium and the 3 year old just loved it ... Must visit when in Dubai ... Well maintained and smooth experience ... Be sure to book online ahead of visiting the place, the discount is worth it

It was an ok visit, but I didn't really enjoy what I saw, because I could tell that most of the dolphins there were unhappy at being used for entertainment.
