Dolphin Bay Dubai: All You Need To Know About Your Dolphin Encounter

We all enjoy watching the cute little dolphins prancing in waters. Sometimes we have fed them too. But we kinda get tired of watching dolphins from afar. And at Dolphin Bay in Atlantis, we can go for a swim also with the dolphins. You can stand next to them in shallow waters or even take a dip in the deep waters. Of course, there will be a trainer next to you. But what all do you need to know about the experience? We tell you that here.

What’s It?

Dolphins are known to be friendly little creatures. So the experience of interacting with them is something we all crave for. And the best part? It’s that it’s not just for adults. Your little kid can learn to care for animals, too, as they interact with the amiable dolphins in the shallow waters. So there are multiple options available for you to choose your way of interacting with the dolphins.

Located at Dubai Atlantis, the Dolphin Bay makes for an excellent experience for the vacationers, too, when you are here with family. There is a great plus to the entire experience also- Folks can enjoy the Aquaventure Waterpark for free om the same day. Ain’t that great?!

Different Experiences

You and your kid can get into the shallow waters and interact with the cute little dolphins here. Shake hands or kiss them on the nose, as they go splashing around you.

However, children under 12 will have to bring in their guardians too.
