Visiting Dubai Dolphinarium

Dolphins? in the desert? YES!

Dubai Dolphinarium opened last year and I have heard lots of good things about it. We have postponed going there for the longest time but finally went – and wondered why we put it off for so long!

They have added special lighting, smoke and sound effects to all of the programs. The photo I took couldn’t justify the amazing light and sound effects we experienced.

The 3 dolphins had a grand entrance. Pristine couldn’t stop clapping her hands.

The dolphins, each having their own names (wait, I’llĀ  ask my daughter, she knows the names by heart) entertained the crowd with their impressive jumping.

Twirling ball, dancing…

Seals join the dolphins for the second half part of the show. They are all so intelligent creatures.

The show was spectacular. Pristine, my girl who’s scared of small fishes is NOT afraid of the big fishes at all. Just minutes after the show started, she was already telling me that we’ll just have to come again!

If you’re in Dubai and haven’t checked out Dubai Dolphinarium, then you should! We spent a great time there and it’s not just for kids, it’e great entertainment for adults as well. I can’t tell you how much I said “wooo!” and clapped my hands plus I was smiling the entire show which lasted for an hour! *yes, that is my idea of entertainment*
