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

Though coming from the Southern tip of India, where you could still encounter few wild dolphins in backwaters, I have never come so close to actually touching a dolphin. We (family of 3) booked 'Up, Close & Personal' package from Dolphinarium and this encounter is possibly one of the best highlights of our trip to Dubai. We had a ball... More

Watched the dolphin and seal show, kids loved it!! Thoroughly entertaining for all the family...would highly suggest the VIP area for seats. Highly recommend to watch especially with kids. We also paid extra to touch a dolphin and have a picture taken, however that was pretty rushed as it's literally a touch and have your photograph taken so don't expect... More

It's first fully air conditioned dolphinarium in Middle East. The people can watch & interact with seals & dolphins and take photos. It's located near creek park in But Dubai. All ages of people can enjoy and relax with that marine show. The different shows by that dolphins & seals makes a stunning show throughout. Great for kids.

This dolphin show was visited by me with my wife and kid 3years old. The show was okay. Nothing exceptional. We booked the 3pm show that includes the illusion show also. The illusion was not so great. However we enjoyed the dolphin and seal show. It was nothing exceptional. Better book the 11am show and check for discounted deals only.... More

The show is good but gets repetitive in short time. Coaches treat the dolphins or seal only if they perform well. It broke my heart a bit.
