I was extremely skeptical at first, but then had to be proven wrong. A good cause, a wonderful experience for the whole family. Super helpful and friendly staff and a fun water park for everyone. Highly Recommended. Beware of confusion: There are 2 Uber/Careem locations in the immediate vicinity. One in front of the Aquaventure water park and one in front of Hotel Atlantis.

Although expensive, it was a unique experience! In the Dolphin Bay we were accompanied in a very friendly manner from registration to the end. Swimming with the dolphins was just amazing - an opportunity to get so close to these animals is unique! Instead of the announced group size of 6 people, there were only four of us, we were allowed to act with 2 different dolphins one after the other and it also took much longer than the announced 30 minutes. A small downside is that you are not allowed to take photos yourself (like in the water?) and the photos offered afterwards are nice, but very expensive. We had chosen 3 photos that should cost 540 dirhams (= approx. 135 €) and then decided to take all 149 photos on a USB stick for 1,250 dirhams (= approx. 312 €) in order to have a permanent one To have memories of this great experience. Definitely highly recommended!!!

Extraordinary moment! Very nice instructors We took the opportunity to take a dip in the sea in the Aquaventure park where the dolphin activity takes place. Great beach without anyone. It is therefore useful to plan extra time. By cons the price would have been much cheaper by buying locally, there was no queue!
