Dolphin Bay, Atlantis The Palm Overview

Dolphin Bay, located in Atlantis - The Palm Resort in Dubai, is not just any old habitat for marine animals, it is, in fact, the most sophisticated dolphin habitat in the world - home to dozens of Indo-Pacific Bottlenose dolphins. Spread across nearly 11 acres, it is home to seven pools that are interconnected as well as three interaction lagoons. One of the most favourite leisure spots in Dubai, Dolphin Bay offers a wide range of experiences to choose from. One can opt for an activity based on their ages and swimming abilities.

For the more experienced swimmers, scuba diving with these adorable little munchkins is a great idea; a document of scuba certification is required for this. And for the younger ones, or with sub-par swimming abilities, standing in shallow waters or shallow swimming is the perfect way to bond with these innocent but playful mammals. The most popular experience here is the Atlantis Dolphin Encounter, which takes visitors into the pool, in waist deep water to interact with the dolphins.

In addition, guests who are averse to getting into the swimming pool can have their photos taken with the dolphins, while petting or kissing them. They do not have to enter the pool at all, since the dolphins do come out of the pool for short durations!

Truly an unforgettable experience, make sure to pay it a visit whenever you are in Dubai. The attraction is open for guests of the Atlantis - The Palm Resort as well as for day visitors.
