Great overall experience, you only get limited time but everyone gets a turn. If you have kids you get complimentary entry into water park which is worth using. Water park is very busy though. The dolphin experience is quite commercial but you forget it when you see the amazing creatures. Young boy of 3 was nervous at start but staff... More

We bought our tickets in advance before coming out to Dubai which we were pleased that we did as it was fully booked. We went for a 9.30am slot and we arrived about 8.50am it took us approximately 20 minutes to be given our bands (as you get free entry into the water park too) and then we were taken... More

This is the second time we have visited Dolphin Bay but the first time we have reviewed our experience. Firstly it is quite expensive, just under £600 for an adult and two children (10 and 11 years of age), this is before you start buying photographs. That said, the staff are extremely friendly and professional and the orientation session prior... More

Of course the dolphin trainers were so observing and responsible. There was... More

This was such an amazing experience for all ages. The instructors did an excellent job in making both visitors and dolphins feel comfortable and relaxed in the water. The encounter lasted for 30 mins. For the first part everyone had a chance to stroke the dolphin in a group of about 9-10 people, then kiss the dolphin individually, hold the... More

Awesome exhilirating experience. My dolphin name was lisa. I signed up for a package called dolphin encounter which includes spending minimum 30mins with her with a group of people. Activites include petting her, dancing/playing with her....and hugs and kisses. It was truly an unforgettable lifetime experience. The dolphin was not taxed with lots of activities nor it was an overcrowding... More

My husband and I had a wonderful time swimming at the Dolphin Bay in Atlantis, The Palm. The trainers were extremely professional and allowed us to safely play with the dolphins. My only complaint is that we had to wait a long time before we were allowed to enter the lounge when it was chilly outside...and weren't offered any refreshments... More
