We were there for the show in the summer 2016, had expectations to see some dolphins live for the first time. The pool area for the dolphins looks really old and small, and the building itself is not in a good shape. The local community should spend some money at this attraction and upgrade it. But the show was good,... More

Well trained, smart, playful and intelligent dolphins. Dolphins will sing to you. They will rock-and-roll and waltz.

A great show with dolphins and prizes aren't as high as they normally are! Kids have a lot fun but if you're under 12 you can't swim with the dolphins

We liked the show but kids under 12 years old are not allowed to swim with dolphins. The entrance fee and swimming with dolphins prices are very afforable compared with one in Istanbul.

We visited this place with family, grandparents, and a 9yr old. All of us found the show mesmerizing. Tricks were out of this world. Great audience participation. The mammals were healthy and truly loved. We stayed behind to allow the crowds to clear and the trainers interaction was unbelievable, with the dolphin's coming up to kiss her. Under The pool...

We went there with our children to see Dolphins due to bad weather outside. Firstly we noticed that there was just ca 10 parking places in front of the Dolphinarium - half of these occupied by taxis. We were looking for a place to park as the show was beginning in 5 minutes - found some cars parking near the... More

We visited this place during our holiday in Grand hotel Varna in Sant Constantin and Helena. This show was very short, about 30 minutes. Altogether you can see 5 dolphins, but show is with 4 dolphins. We have seen dolphins in other countries (Italy, Spain), but this show was the least interesting and boring. We looked forward to great show,... More
