  • the show is not bad, for the sea lions than the dolphins. It's always a shame to see these animals in captivity, but it's still worth it. However no need to take the seats in VIP as we see both other seats.

  • Best in the world. Dubai Dolphinarium is the first fully air-conditioned indoor dolphinarium in the Middle East, providing habitat to dolphins and seals, allowing the public to watch and interact with them through live shows and photo sessions. It is located in the creek side park at Bur Dubai near the Children's City. Dubai Dolphinarium was opened on May 21, 2008 by Dubai Municipality, and is sponsored and supported by Dubai government to provide the general public with entertainment and also educate them regarding dolphins, seals and other marine organisms, It was also reflected that interacting with such friendly mammals like dolphins will motivate young generation to protect marine life and the environment.
  • The show is really worth seeing. It is of less than an hour but worth every penny. The dolphinarium is located in a very nice park. In winter time it is a nice place for kids to enjoy an open space.
  • Your trip to Dubai isn't complete if you don't visit the Dubai dolphin show. It's a 1.5 hour show where you'll be amazed to see the skills of a sea lion and then these amazing dolphins who'll make you fall in love with them. Their cuteness, enthusiasm and training is unmatched to anything.
  • This was an excellent experience - the kids really enjoyed the experience and the show was super interactive. Definitely a place we would come to see again! The light show at the beginning was a bit loud, apart from that, it was an excellent show.
  • Wonderful place to be in with family.. my kids enjoyed a lot.. the show was super...exciting and funny.. other activities were also good. Really great

Where to stay in Dubai

Dubai is a city of hotels, with most of the world's leading chains represented. Rooms remain expensive and luxurious, as most establishments cater to visitors with deeper pockets. You can still save money on accommodations if you look hard enough. Move away from the coast for more affordable backpacker hostels and self-service apartments, as well as less expensive hotel rooms where a lack of luxurious amenities and less appealing views keep rates suited to budget travelers.
