Our guide to Dolphin Bay at Atlantis The Palm

The incredible resort destination of Atlantis, The Palm, holds countless secrets for a visitor to discover but no corner of the resort holds quite the same fascination as the gentle residents at Dolphin Bay.

Here there are three vast lagoons where you can meet and play with beautiful Indo-Pacific Bottlenose Dolphins or Sea Lions during a shallow water or deep water interaction. Accompanied by a qualified marine mammal specialist, enjoy an up-close experience as you touch, hug and even kiss these charismatic and graceful creatures.

As a bonus, every interaction includes complimentary same-day access to the legendary Aquaventure waterpark and pristine beach with panoramic views of Dubai’s stunning skyline.

Choose from the following experiences

Each option includes 30-minutes in the water with the animals:

  • Dolphin Dip & Play: Wade into waist-high water for a magical dolphin encounter which includes the chance to kiss, hug, touch, pet, dance and play with one of the beautiful dolphins and watch some high energy behaviours. Groups are limited to just 10 guests per dolphin.

Easy to book and easy to pay. Also, we had to exchange the voucher for tickets at the counter at the Atlantis and everything went smoothly.
