Dolphinarium Vs Dolphin Bay at Atlantis (4 Replies)
Hi, We are a couple with a child aged 4 and will be in Dubai during November 2012. We are really keen to have an interaction with the Dolphins and need to decide between the Dolphinarium and the Dolphin Bay Encounter at Atlantis. Need suggestions basis the price and the actual experience of spending time with the dolphins. Also, which of the two would be a better place considering that we have a 4 year old daughter who can't swim as of now. Please help us decide!

Response fromVasu8|
Atlantis experience is a close encounter with dolphins, but I am not sure if they would let a 4-year old to get near the creature. Check their website. Dolphinarium in Creek Park is just a standard dolphin show, which is also fun to the kids. Latter one is cheaper and for a short duration (maybe a couple of hours at most). It is also closed one day in a week (Sunday I think); a discounted fee for Monday a.m. Check their web page also.
