Owner description: 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

If you visit UAE, this is the attraction you must visit it. If you go on friday 11.0 a.m show, there will be a good discount. My kids enjoyed a lot.

I purchased the ticket online for Dubai dolphinarium specifically for Monday (prices are cheaper) as compared to weekends.
Its really unforgettable experience especially for family with kids watching first time.
We were so amazed by seeing the moves by dolphin.
I have heard that dolphins are quite smart, but have also seen that they are so fun loving and friendly.
Dolphins do such an incredible jumps, flip over that it's a must watch show.
Location for Dubai dolphinarium is Creek Park.
You have to pay 5 AED ticket to enter the park.
Earliest show is 11 AM.
Must watch show !

“The kids will love it”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

The location is very good which in in the creek park which is close to Rashid hospital and Waffi Mall.

The charges are not very expensive my 120 AED for adults and 85 AED for child this is for the VIP tickets and the seatings are only the one in the miiddle to you can see sharp. you also can buy the normal tickets but my advise if you want to get the good seats try to be there before the time by at least half hour.

i went in the middlle of the week i avoided the week end i am sure it will be fully crowded because it cheeper than Atlantis.

We couldnt swim with the Dolphines because on that day they service was not provided.

before intering the park you should also pay 5 AED for each.

You will find out while seated and waiting some one selling balls, my advise buy for your kids because you will end up throwing it to the Dolphine which you might if the Dolpine choses your ball, and the prizes are a boat ride pulled by a Dolphine which my doughter won and he loved it and enjoyed and if you can buy a ticket for this your self go ahead your kids will love this ride, inaddition you also get a free picture if she get this free ride.

if you want a group pic with the Dolphine its for 120AED and the other additional pic will be for 85 AED.

The show is 45 Min only, you will enjoy the Dolphine and the seal show both.

The only thing which i didnt like is that when the speaker speaks trough the microphone it was not clear and i couldnt get what he used to say, so most of the words i missed, example what are the cost for each picture and what service they provied for guests if they want to be with the Dolphins.

The speakers speak both languages Arabic and English.

When you leave, youw ill find the staff with Dolphine ballons, each is for 20 AED.

You can buy you tickets Online which is much easier but make sure that kids who less than 2 years old interes for free so no need to buy them tickets.

The staff are very friendly and they give the best service.

Hope i gave the advise you are looking for, and enjoy the show when you will go.

“Nice Show”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

The dolphin show at the dolphinarium is really great. Must watch with kids and family. They do real nice and neat tricks like dancing, ring skipping, ball catching and throwing and many more. The seal show was good but not the best but the dolphin show was out of this world. In the end the chance to take a photo with the dolphin was amazing. all 3 dolphins lined up.
