At Dubai Dolphinarium you can see six bottlenose dolphins and six seals perform a show full of acrobatics, dancing, juggling, jumping through hoops, and painting. You read that right. Painting. The 45-minute show is a popular Dubai attraction, and receives over 30,000 visitors a month.
Opened by the Dubai government in 2008 in order to teach younger generations about marine life and protection of the environment, Dubai Dolphinarium is the first marine center in the Middle East to be fully indoors and air-conditioned. Photo sessions with the dolphins and seals are available, and you can also arrange to swim with the dolphins.
Another popular attraction at Dubai Dolphinarium is the Creek Park Bird Show, where over 20 species of bird fly over the audience. The dolphinarium is also home to the UAE’s only mirror maze, and a 5D and 7D cinema. There’s also a new, underwater-themed soft play area for small children.
