Dolphin Bay in Atlantis, The Palm

Dolphin Bay in Atlantis, The Palm

The Dolphin Bay in Atlantis on the island of Palm Jumeirah in Dubai, United Arab Emirates is regarded as one of the most splendid dolphin habitats in the world. A visit to this place will give you the opportunity to swim with these fascinating marine mammals through an array of experiences that are designed for all ages. Interactions range from standing in the shallows or scuba diving to be up close and personal with these animals.

Particularly, the top activities that you can enjoy here include the Dolphin Encounter, where you can wade into the waist-high crystal clear waters and touch, hug, hold fins and play with the dolphins, and the Dolphin Adventure, where you will have a one-of-a-kind experience in the depths of the lagoon, hugging, dancing and belly-riding with the animals, which is a signature activity in this location. However, keep in mind that this program is designed only for confident swimmers and accepts children of at least 8 years of age.

There is also the more advanced Dolphin Scuba Dive, which only allows certified scuba divers to enjoy the rare opportunity to swim and play with dolphins under deep waters using scuba gear and equipment.

It is through this activity that you will get the experience of feeling the power of the dolphins as they pull you along underwater. All diving equipment will be provided to you, as no personal dive gear will be allowed for the safety and health of the animals. All in all, these activities will allow you to discover interesting facts about dolphins and other marine mammals.

For the utmost safety of the animals and the guests alike, and to ensure that everyone will have a great time, the Dolphin Bay administration places a few key rules for the dolphin viewing experiences. Generally, these include: not permitting watches, jewelry, hair accessories, sunglasses, hats and other loose articles in the water; providing guests with swim vests and wet suits for the interaction and not permitting guests to wear their personal suits; not allowing the use of cameras in the water, though there will be a photographer provided throughout the interaction; and offering an “observer pass” to allow friends and family to take pictures from the safety of the beach.

Take note that the scheduled time for your experience with the dolphins is for your mandatory check-in and not for the interaction itself, which means that it is very important to arrive at your scheduled time. Also, you will not be provided with a reschedule or a refund if you fail to arrive on time. So, to make sure that you will get the best experience at this place, take the time to review its complete set of rules, the swimming and age requirements, as well as the polices.
