Atlantis Shallow Water Dolphin Encounter

Enjoy an unforgettable experience during the Atlantis Dolphin Encounter (a shallow water interaction) at Dolphin Bay in Dubai. Wade into waist-high, crystal clear waters and enter the intriguing and playful world of dolphins as they swim and show-off some of their favourite skills. Then come nose-to-bottlenose for an up-close experience as you touch, hug and even kiss your new dolphin friend.

Touching, hugging, holding ‘hands’ and playing ball are some of the activities guests can experience during this interaction which is open to all ages and suitable for non-swimmers. Limited to just 10 guests per dolphin, this intimate experience begins with an orientation session and includes 30 minutes in the water. Once the interaction is complete, guests are invited to enjoy a complementary non-alcoholic beverage.

Children under 3 years old are allowed to participate at parent’s discretion but must be accompanied by a paying adult and will need to purchase a ticket.
