We only went there because the Planetarium was closed, on our last day in Varna. It was O.K. but more enjoyable for children

Very interesting place with exotic marine species! Amazing dolphin show, lasts about 35 minutes. Tickets are cheap. You can also have a coffee and enjoy the view from the dolphin aquarium. Very good place to visit in Varna, especially if you have kids. :)

Very expensive for what they offer... The staff there is also very rude and they lie in your face...

An amazing experience! The instructors were great, with clear instructions. Wasn’t just swimming with the Dolphins but also got to perform many tricks with the dolphins too. A thoroughly enjoyable day and highly recommended!

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.
