The UAE's Only Dolphin & Seal Show & Much More!

Over 30,000 visitors per month get up close & personal to graceful dolphins & playful seals at Dubai Dolphinarium' action-packed shows. These interactive extravaganzas showcase these amazing animals' astounding skills. Visitors watch in wonder as the dolphins & seals perform incredible acrobatics, dance, sing, juggle & even paint.

Daily swimming with dolphin sessions allow visitors a once in a life-time experience to interact with our amazing mammals, they are suitable for swimmers from 5 years onwards & advance booking is essential.

We are home to the Creek Park Exotic Bird Show, the only exotic bird show in the region. Our shows are an action-packed experience with over 20 different species of birds & parrots. Guests become part of the action as the birds interact with the audience and fly overhead throughout the show.

The regions only mirror maze is a dizzying labyrinth where visitors are challenged to find their way through a baffling & disconcerting maze of mirrors. Once inside the mirrors, they won't be able to work out the way to go & will have to use their sense of touch & adventure to work out the way.

Our under the sea themed adventure soft play is set over three floors, kids can slide down a helter-skelter, explore & climb through tunnels, bounce on a trampoline, play in the ball-pit & much more!

Wet, wild & totally wonderful

Overall it's a bit pricey for what it is but the kids enjoyed it. The illusionist went on too long and was very average but the breakdancing seal and the Dolphins were very impressive, putting the captive animal issues aside obviously. It's indoor which is ideal for when the heat gets too much for the children outside, but don't expect... More

It was the first time for me to experience such a show. I have always wanted to see dolphins, but never had the chance before. I literally enjoyed every single second. Dolphins are extremely trained and trainers are very professionals. Show is not very expensive. VIP seats costs 120 dirhams per person, and if you have Entertainer, you will take... More

I have seen dolphin shows in Karachi and Germany and now in Dubai. The one I saw in Dubai was the most expensive of three and not good at all. The presenter will talk more and will waste your time. Dolphins performed just 4 or 5 stunts. My friends, This is Dubai, tourist heaven, Dubai needs to improve the quality... More

This is worth a visit, there is an illusionist, a seal show followed by a very spectacular Dolphin show to end the programme. I would advise looking at show times before you attend as there is little else to do while waiting for the show to begin unless you are going to look around creek park first. I went with... More

This was a wonderful show, the dolphins were spectacular! Such amazing animals! The dolphinarium is located in Creek Park and there are different tickets and experiences available. As well as the dolphin & seal shows, there is also the opportunity to swim with dolphins, a bird show, a 5D cinema and a mirror maze (prices vary accordingly). We went to... More

A wonderful way to see the animal up close. the show with seals and dolphins was great. You can actually see the animals bond so well with their trainers. The Dolphinarium is located in Creek Park. You can click pictures with the dolphins. You also can swim with them. Prices differ accordingly.

Located in Dubai, it is the first completely air-conditioned indoor dolphinarium in the Middle East. It was opened to the public on May 21, 2008 by Dubai Municipality. It allows the public to watch and interact with seals and dolphins throw live shows and photo sessions. The main motive was to let the young generation interact with these friendly mammals,... More
