Our first visit was unforgettable, especially when my son wined a free ride with the dolphin at the end of the show. Being at the front, definitely you will get wetted. The Dolphinarium is in the heart of Dubai, at the Greek garden, nearby there was the kids city, actually we enjoyed the whole day, but actually we missed the... More

It was not the first time I visited the Dolphins dance. But the expert coaches made the dolphins to do amazing moves and play interesting games and it was great for me. I visited Kish Island Dolphinarium in Iran bfore that. that was great too.

A great show. All the performers & their instructors create an excellent fun environment especially for kids. Perhaps the only downside is the size of the arena which could have been more spacious. Still, it is a must see especially if you are traveling with kids.

Dubai is supposedly one of the most modern and up to date cities in the world. The tallest buildings, indoor ski slopes, man made islands... and then this POOR EXCUSE of a dolphin habitat. With all the expertise on this planet is this seriously the best Dubai has to offer? SHOCKING and CRUEL! This kind of facility gives all Marine... More

In this modern day there are so many dolphin experiences which are in open sea water etc. It would be good to see the dolphins get a better home... Also the dolphin staff were not the friendlyness and the... More

The show was average. I have seen much better shows. Swimmers were not diving with the fishes and fishes didn't splash water. They auctioned a painting made by a dolphin which was kind a cheesy. Picture taking was amazing though. Dolpjis were very friendly.
