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

We went there with no big expectations. I have seen dolphin shows in states and back home in pakistan but boy was this one worth it. Adult ticket is 120 and child 70 AED but you can get a 25 % discount if you have coupons or a resident card. Cobone has a deal also. You might want to avail... More

Amazing family fun. The show is light and kids would love it! The show starts on time so don't miss out booking online is easy, it's inside a park so there's a separate entry fee which is 5 Dhs per person.

I have to click 1 rating as I totally disapprove of dophinariums. I must admit the animals are well cared for but for such intelligent and majestic animals, swimming around in a non stimulating pool must drive them mad. People can pay to swim with these delightful creatures and they are loved and petted, but i would much rather see... More

You can't imagine what animals are capable of doing unless you witness it. The Dolphin and the Seal were just awesome at what they were doing. and still wondering how would they have been trained and been training them across till time. (y) Must visit.
