With the entrance ticket they should give you something in the bar at least.

The place is ok, do not think it worth the price.
The staff in the bar was really friendly.
Except for the price is a good place.

A great venue with a private beach, clear water and of course-the dolphins. Don't miss out on this place when visiting Eilat!

Amazing Dive Experience
Mar 2021
Great diving guides. It was our first time scuba diving and they made it so easy. I was amazed.
My son didn't see any dolphins on his dive so the instructor said he would take him for another dive at no charge. He took for another whole hour!
My family loved the snorkeling lesson too. Do that before diving.
The dolphins stick around the beach and come so close.

Amazing morning diving in a fantastic location
Mar 2021
The family enjoyed a morning diving with professional divers in a beginner environment and with the opportunity to swim with dolphins up close. It was unforgettable! The people working there are fantastic- Tamar in the diving center was excellent. Each person in our family was given a professional diver to literally hold our hand while we dove for 25 minutes. Two out of three of us had very attentive and nice divers. Unfortunately one of us had a diver who didn’t speak English and who was not helpful. Diving for the first time is a bit intimidating but the two good divers really made it easier and enjoyable. The only reason for not giving this place five stars is because the third diver was not up to par. If you are an English speaker you really need to ensure you have a diver who speaks English because it makes a huge difference in your experience! I still highly recommend doing this but just make sure your diver is able to communicate. Also, get an early appointment because the place fills up and the parking is limited!

Nice dolphins
Aug 2020
It's a very nice beach. Lots of shade and you can see dolphins. They also serve food (OK by beach bar standards).

You can pay extra for swimming with dolphins, but I would recommend against doing that because dolphins may never come close to you (as happened in our case). Snorkelling / scuba diving is better (and probably cheaper) elsewhere along the coast.

Beware that there may be very many people in the morning, so either come early, grab a place in the shade and persevere or come after lunch.

Also, this place is super-expensive. But almost nobody pays the "full" price because there are various discounts: for Eilat residents, for employees of some large companies, etc. Just make sure the visit does not ruin your budget.

Great experience!
Aug 2020 • Family
Family of 4, parents and two boys with special needs, we wanted to do a first scuba diving.
We explained the dpecial situation there. The manager came and talked with the boys with great attitude, which was so surprising and exciting: he explained us the scuba diving process, the special signs , about the equipment, everything.
Two days later we came, each of us got a private scuba diving guide which was holding our hand all the time. My two boys with special needs actually made it under the water for 25 minutes, saw many nice fish and few dolphines !!! Which came very close to us, few meters away.
We are grategul to the great team, from the manager down to to the diving guides, and highly reccomend anyone to visit Dolphin Reef in Eilat.
