If you have ever wanted to make friends with a dolphin at close hand, this is the perfect tour for you. On the way to the aptly named Dolphin Bay, a part of the Atlantis Hotel complex, the tour will also take you through the Palm Jumeirah, a magnificent man-made archipelago of islands. Once at Dolphin Bay, you will be escorted by an expert in aquatic mammals and given a short presentation on the life of a dolphin as well as instruction on how to behave towards these creatures in the water. You will then have an opportunity to personally interact with the dolphins in their lagoon (without swimming). The tour continues with a visit to the adjacent Aquaventure water park, which boasts exciting water slides, refreshing swimming pools, and unspoiled beaches.
Please note: you will not be permitted to wear sunscreen, tanning oil or jewellery since these can harm the dolphins’ skin. This activity involves wearing a swimming suit or bathing trunks. Children must be at least 4 years old to participate; children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Shooting videos or taking photos at Dolphin Bay is prohibited. Due to the marked differences between outside temperatures and those found in the places visited as well as the air-conditioned tour vehicles, it is recommended that you take a light cotton jumper or cardigan for your comfort.
