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 spent almost all day there with our 2 year old. This is great facility offering same service as Atlantis Dolphin Bay but for much more reasonable rate. We did shallow encounter with Dolphin. 3 tickets costed us around 300 USD. (dolphin bay would have been 900AED FOR one person!) This included 3 complementary photos of our encounter, 20 mins...

I had an excellent time doing this. The trainer was excellent talking about the dolphins and teaching the whole time. The dolphins were very gentle. I bought the pictures that were made and the photographers were great. The facility was very clean and well organized.

Indeed if you have couple of hr. to spare, you must visit. Record a nice show of Dolphin which allowed. Take care if you don't want to wet by dolphin jumps water, to select your seat accordingly. Near by seats, ready to be wet.

Dubai Dolphinarium is located inside Creek park. You need to buy Creek park ticket to access this place. Children love the Dolphin show. You can buy VIP tickets if want to sit in Center which is bit better to get clear view of the show.

Good show... Nicely presented... Would suggest that you reach the place early to get better seats. Kids will love it. There was a baby dolphin who was trying out his tricks for the very first time with his seniors . This was indeed fun to watch.

Nice show from the Dolphins. we could see for the first time a baby dolphin (which is already big) and who try to follow his brother and his mother. Kids love this and it was good experience for them. Even if the show start 10min beyond the original schedule, try to come earlier if you want to have a nice... More
