Booked Dolphin Bay with my nephew for a day out and it was quite enjoyable and very well organised. From the initial orientation session, the changing rooms and to finally swimming with the Dolphins. Our trainer & dolphin were amazing and made the whole experience more memorable. The best part was being able to purchase (albeit at a steep price)... More

I was in Dubai celebrating my 60th birthday with my daughter. She had decided it was time I had the dolphin experience. it was amazing Lisa our dolphin was 25 years old and was beautiful. the staff have a rigorous programme for safety and information. Photos taken were very good quality but very expensive

Dolphin Bay, at the Aquaventure (Atlantis), is a totally surreal experience. You are given ~20 mins of information/instructions and then you are in the water with the adorable dolphins. The pro-photographers capture your most memorable moments with the dolphins. The experience is on the expensive side, but definitely worth it.

We had the most amazing visit with S2 the dolphin and his trainers. From the moment we arrived we were made welcome and the facilities were immaculate. The best bit was kissing S2 - no the best bit was dancing with S2- no the best bit was the belly swim.In fact it was all outstanding. We can't wait to return.

We did the shallow water interaction. All ages can do this. You have time individually and as a group with the dolphins. We were able to touch and play with the dolphin. There was a video and introduction before hand which was informative. Amazing creatures.
