The Dubai Dolphinarium is one of the most loved attractions in Dubai, United Arab Emirates and is visited by more than 30,000 tourists each month. Here, you will have the opportunity to get up close and personal with bottlenose dolphins and seals on an action-packed live show.
This dolphinarium is a modern marine facility that covers 5,000 square meters with around 1,250 heads for seating capacity. The animals here are provided with their own private habitat area of sea water that is connected to the main arena pool, and there is also a separate medical pool where they are cared for their well-being. The dolphinarium is home to a total of 5 black sea bottlenose dolphins and 4 northern fur seals.
The attractions that make your visit here more fun and memorable include:
- Dolphin Planet - Here, you can join the dolphins through poolside interactions or deep water adventures, where you can swim to get a unique experience of meeting these incredible mammals under the supervision of expert trainers.
- Dolphin and Seal Show - The dolphinarium allows visitors to witness the graceful bottlenose dolphins and playful seals through action-packed shows, showcasing the amazing animals perform some astounding skills. You can watch in awe as these animals dance, juggle, jump through hoops, play ball, sing and even paint.
- Creek Park Bird Show - There is also the only exotic bird show in the region—the Creek Park Bird Show—which offers an action-packed experience with more than 20 different birds and parrots. During their free flight show, you will get up close and personal to these birds and marvel as they swoop overhead and interact with the spectators. You will also be able to learn about these birds’ intelligence, natural habitats, social structures, training, diet and conservation.
- Mirror Maze - Another little gem of attractions in this dolphinarium is the only mirror maze in Dubai, which is made of a dizzying labyrinth with a visual size of more than 10,000 square feet. Here, you will be challenged to find your way through a disconcerting and baffling maze of mirrors, as well as a bewildering network of endless corridors with a complex arrangement of reflecting glasses. Once you are within the mirrors, you will have to use your senses of touch and adventure to work your way out.
There are various activities held at this dolphinarium each year, including a children’s summer camp, particularly called the Dubai Summer Surprises. There are also promotional activities, such as the Autism Awareness Day that was organized in collaboration with the Dubai Municipality.
All in all, the dolphinarium complex features children’s activities, school field trips, birthday parties, the Arabesque dance school, kids corner, film showing at a mini 5D cinema theater and quick and fun meals for children at the restaurant.
