Wise money, really expensive. 10 people group, you touch the dolphin 3-4 times. You cannot do pictures by yourself, and you have to buy the pictures at the end which is really expensive. - these are done by a professional photographer. 600 AED for 50 pictures. - 2-3 pictures alone, rest of them are group photos.

This was a birthday present for our daughter’s 8th birthday and it was a great experience for her and us. The staff is amazing and is clear how well looked after are the dolphins. Dolphin Lisa even sang happy birthday to her. The trainers Gulia and Simiso were amazing. I only wish that the picture packages were cheaper.

Amazing. Dolphins are treated so well and had the best time with my friend. Piccies we’re a bit expensive at the end to be expected, at around £40 a pop but if you bring someone with you to sit out and take pictures that’s allowed. Overall great experience, wish I’d done the slightly more expensive one and got to swim with them cos that looked really fun
