  • For 45 mins of a show, I found it quite pricey at 150 Dirhams per person. There was not discount for kids. Though my 5 year old loved the show but I found it just OK. Please look at Groupon UAE or Cob...  more »

  • WOW this has to be one of the best dolphin shows around...you are so close the the tank...and feel p[art of the show. with regular shows through out the day booking in advance will save the disappointment on not getting a seat. There isn't direct transport here..so your most likely going to need to get a taxi. Be warned when you leave you do get private taxi companies trying to offer you taxi service... i would stick to the official yellow taxi company's... i wouldn't wait for it to get dark here if your with family and kids as its a good drive back into the centre of Dubai and the dolphinarium is part of a public park so anyone can be there.
  • The show was breathtaking. We went to the park on friday morning and watched the 11am show. For tickets, we paid AED 70 per adult and AED 40 for children (AED 220 in total) and we did not regret paying that amount because the show was great as well as the animals seemed to be well taken care of. The show was finished in 45 minutes before the animals were getting tired. A must visit place in dubai.
  • Is't a must visit if you have kids to accompany - They will enjoy it. You can avoid it if visiting alone or only going in a group of adults. There is nothing much to see, the dolphin show I saw 2 and half years ago was much much better than the one I saw last week (August-2016) as there were only 4 dolphins and the acts were also very few while 2 years ago there were 8 dolphins and the acts were many and very interesting as well. Our daughter enjoyed it so the visit was fruitful luckily.
  • I expected a solid one hour show but it was much shorter than that. It had two separate shows which started with a seal and its lady trainer followed by the 3 bottle-nosed dolphins. The dolphins show are fantastic! Must see for adults and kids alike. It has a part with audience participation for kids.
  • Great Place for Dolphin shows. Better if you book tickets in advance online. Usually the shows are full. Kids will surely enjoy the shows.
