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

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.

Did you book the swimming with dolphins in advance or did you purchase the ticket on the day? I don't seem able to book it online and I've emailed the establishment but I wondered if you could share how you booked this. Did you watch the dolphin show as well on the same day? Thanks.
