We booked a 10am slot, with us staying at the hotel we were up early and decided to go along to get our bearings. We were offered an earlier slot. The experience itself is well worth the money, getting that up close and personal with them was an amazing feeling! Would love to do it again when we are back... More

We loved everything: - the location; - the very well trained, funny and friendly staff; - the way it was organized and explained starting with facts about dolphins and how we were supposed to interact with them in the water to the actual, in the pool, experience; - the fact that we could choose between a deep water experience and...

It was a great experience. You go close to dolphins, you can touch them. And don't worry they are not wild. Very friendly.

Do your booking. Be there the exact time you scheduled and let your dreams come true. Everything is well organized. Just follow your guides, their instructions and you will have a lifetime experience. No need to worry about photos. The professional photographer worth every penny you will pay.

Had booked a dolphin encounter for the four of us which was a great experience but it comes at a price Interaction is for 30min, you can touch the dolphin and dance with him, the obligatory kiss pose is included, worth it, yes. As you cant bring a mobile or camera you need to buy the same from them. For... More

Been here a few times now with different families or friends the facilities are great and it's a well organised operation with state of the art facilities . Everybody loved it and you get the feeling the dolphins are well looked after.

I had wanted to swim with dolphins for a long time so this was something I was really looking forward to. I had to book the tour the day before due to the trip being last minute. Overall the experience was good, well organised and the dolphins were really the stars if the show. Amazingly talented creatures! I paid 300... More

What a fantastic venue.From the security staff who searched our bags to the trainers who managed the sea lions and the dolphins,we found it to be a very professional operation.Travelling with an elderly person who is mobility restricted can pose its own challenges,but all the staff and in particular Bouchra went out of their way to help,and ensured that we...

Knowledgeable staff guide you through a truly memorable experience with one of the ten dolphins at Dolphin bay. Each member of the family was able to individually dance, play and kiss Ini the dolphin and there was plenty of time to learn about her whilst playing with her in the water. Expensive but definitely worth it.

I'll start with the negative part first and the reason for the 1 star as i think it was a joke! I knew before booking Dubai that it was generally expensive but I decided to book the royal swim (approx £475) for me and my wife. I was happy to pay this knowing from reviews and research that the facilities... More
