“Awesome !!!”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

Nothing to be disliked here other than the pricing. Tip : catch someone at the ticket counters (outside the counters on your side, normally a promotion guy) slip him some 100 dirhams and he will be able to give you a relief of almost 1000 aed.
We went as 4 adults and 2 kids. It should be on your first priority if you are visiting dubai with family and kids. The prep before show is very educative and informative. Everything is taken care of here in terms of special suits, toilets, drinking water, waiting lines, sitting area, lounges etc. Once you are done with the show, do not forget to take all your photos in a usb drive. Ask for their complete packages info and there you will find it (close to 500 AED). People who do not wish to go in water with dolphins need not buy tickets for dolphin show, they can simply enjoy the show few steps away on the private beach on lounges.

“Informative and fun”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

The Dolphin Bay experience was informative with the briefing done before the experience about dolphins, and the encounter with the dolphins was nice and fun. The water was very cold and you really get to be close to the dolphin but all was quick and the parents waiting for their kids got burned by the sun so be careful.

Took my daughter to swim with Dolphins it was well on her top things to do ,and she certainly love it. Expensive or not it was well worth it to see and hear her reactions. However no need to pay silly money for the photo's that they take. If your child is 12 and over then you just get a observers pass and take as many as you want when you want and you stand about 5 metres away. I got some crackers and took some for others.

“A must for the kids”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

My daughters got in with the dolphins ( not swam but there is that option) and loved it. They petted them, did tricks and fed them. Great photos to keep of a very memorable moment.
