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

The dolphin encounter was an incredible experience. A wonderful opportunity to get up close with the dolphins; learn about them from the guides; and to interact with the animals. Lots of fun, and a special, unforgettable experience. Only negative was the unbelievably high price to purchase the photographs they take of you with the dolphins. The photos are spectacular, but 1,250 Dirhams to purchase the pics on a USB drive came as quite a shock!

Absolutely perfect! The staff is extremely kind and caring. They know their dolphins very well and explain a lot about them to us. We stayed in the water for a good 30 minutes it was awesome! We were able to enjoy the water park for the rest of the day. To do without hesitation! The price remains high but we had a fantastic day we absolutely do not regret!
