Enjoy a one-to-one encounter with a beautiful bottlenose dolphin at Dolphin Bay at Dubai’s Atlantis The Palm. Opt for a shallow-water or deep-water encounter and, with an expert trainer, wade into a warm lagoon for a 30-minute interaction with one of these adorable marine mammals. Whichever option you select, your Atlantis dolphin encounter also gives you free entrance to the Atlantis’ Aquaventure Waterpark, plus a 25% discount on admission to The Lost Chambers Aquarium for visits on the same day as your dolphin interaction.
>> Things to do
What You Can Expect
Select your preferred dolphin experience, and travel independently to Dubai’s Atlantis The Palm. Walk to Dolphin Bay in the resort, where three inviting lagoons set the scene for your encounter.
Greet your dolphin trainer, put on your supplied wetsuit or vest, and start your experience with a 15-minute introduction and safety briefing.
Discover how Dolphin Bay, Dubai’s first mammal rescue and rehabilitation centre, is dedicated to education and conservation, and learn about its adorable residents — Pacific bottlenose dolphins. Sip on an included soda or water as you hear about the lives and characteristics of these endearing mammals.
Stroll to the lagoon with the rest of your group. Numbers are limited to six people per dolphin at most for the shallow-water interaction, and 10 per dolphin for the deep-water session. The small numbers enable you to enjoy a personalized, 30-minute experience in the water.
Whichever option you choose, it comes with included same-day admission to Dubai’s Aquaventure Waterpark, and 25% off same-day entry to The Lost Chambers Aquarium, both at the Atlantis.
Step into the inviting waters beside your trainer and feel the thrill as a friendly dolphin swims up close for a one-to-one interaction. Lightly touch and stroke the beautiful mammal, and watch as the dolphin shows its grace and skills in the water. Your 30-minute experience occurs in shallow water and there’s no need for any swimming.
Wade into deeper waters with the dolphin trainer, and wait as a gorgeous dolphin wafts up to you. Look on as the dolphin swims around you, gliding effortlessly through the lagoon’s deep waters. If you wish, stroke the dolphin and enjoy a gentle tummy ride, skimming through the water on its back.
