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

The dolphinarium is a good visit for old and young alike, the dolphins are quite playful, intelligent, very friendly, and do many tricks for the people. The only negative factor is the costs that may dent a hole in the pocket if you have a large family.

To sum up, it was magnificient experience for her, even for a little (just 30... More

The venue wasn't impressive (interiors) The sound effects are pretty bad, with a muffling of the presenters commentary with a mixing of Arabic and English seamlessly (unfortunately) 40 min of the show is a rather strange circus act without Sea lions/ Dolphins The sea lion show preceding the Dolphin act was lack lustre The dolphins were gorgeous, unfortunately the afore...

Went with my 12 year old daughter and she loved every minute of the visit and 20 minute swim with the dolphins. A bit costly in my opinion for the 20 mts you get to interact with the dolphins though. I am sure not only kids even adults will love to go here and interact with these dolphins.
