The dolphins are extremely talented and they look genuinely happy and well-fed, the trainers are nice and they know what they're doing. It took some time to see the real tricks but it's worth it. The dolphins are so cute!

How can this still be a thing? Exploiting animals who want nothing but freedom. This kind of places just exploit innocent animals for money. If it wasn ´t horrible enough itself, my children cried after leaving this place - they saw how small pool there...More

I'm against animal cruelty and this type of activity must be closed. I saw free dolphins taking a "Sail to sunset" boat ride. Nobody likes to be caged or do tricks for frozen food.

Dolphinarium worth visiting. Shows are too expensive for family visit but while your children are at show, you can drink coffee at cafeteria. It's geat to see dolphins through glass wall of their pool.

Hi Kerri, We were in contact with the dolphins for about an hour. We done about 4 or 5 different tricks with the dolphins. The shows are separate and they are different prices.

Kas Dolphinarium (1 Replies)
The latest news is that the Russian behind the Dolphinarium in Kas who has so far been refused permission to transport 2 of the dolphins to Hisaroniu is looking to promote Kas again for people who want to swim with dolphins. (Misguided as they might be, it is not their fault.) If you are thinking about doing this, please think again! Check out the dangers, the conditions that the dolphins are kept in , please do not waste your money to come away disgusted and disappointed!

I plead with anyone who is considering visiting the dolphinarium here in Kas, to reconsider. It is a watery prison, no larger than a swimming pool. It is in a lagoon which also has the new Kas marina. When this is up and running (apparently this October) the noise from boats plus the pollution will be unbearable for the dolphins. The sound will just richochet around the small lagoon and be extremely damaging to the dolphins radar system. I ask visitors to Kas to boycott the place...More
