Who doesn’t love dolphins? I know I do. They are such fun and docile mammals who remind us of all things fun and wonderful. Have you ever wanted to meet them up close?  Well, Atlantis Aquaventure has just opened the doors for you to meet them if you are up for it! If there is one thing that kids and adults like the same, it’s waterpark and dolphins. Find the mix of both of them in Atlantis and make it your holiday destination!

Atlantis Aquaventure Waterpark

What do you think about making this vacation completely water-based? It is quite a novel idea, isn’t it? If you are on board, then let me introduce you to the best location for this: Atlantis Aquaventure Waterpark in Dubai. As it is the biggest waterpark in the world, Atlantis Aquaventure has over 150 water rides in it! I mean, you would definitely need a whole week of stay in this wonderland of a place to get to every ride. And not only that, but the waterpark has one of the most impressive aquariums in the world, known as The Lost Chambers Aquarium, and it has a whopping 65000 marine animals in it! It is nothing less than grand. The best part about spending time here is that both adults and kids can enjoy the place equally.

I haven’t spoken about the star of the show yet, which is the dolphins! In the Atlas Village, you get a closer look at the very friendly Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphins and spend time with them. Cool, right?

Meeting The Resident Dolphins

The best part about visiting the Atlantis AquaVenture Waterpark is not just the rides or the aquarium but getting to actually meet the wonderful dolphins. In a time when people are growing less and less sympathetic to the marine life around them, the Atlas Village shines as a beam of hope. Here, you not only get to see the dolphins in action but also interact with them, and the mammal experts will help you learn more about the dolphins’ lifestyle and other details.

If you ask me, I would say it is an excellent opportunity to appreciate nature and build a connection with it through dolphins. It can also be an extremely efficient educational session for kids as well. We can understand how our actions affect marine life and how we can make life a tad bit easier for them, if possible. Apart from the activities you get to do with the dolphins (which we will get to in a bit), you can also opt for a behind-the-scenes tour where the marine experts of the waterpark tell you how they care for the dolphins and enrich their lives. It also gives you a chance to take a closer look at how the food is prepared for the mammals, how they are trained, and how their routine checkup gets done. I guarantee you, it is going to be super fun!

Top 5 Dolphin Activities in Atlantis Aquaventure

Now that you have a general idea of what to expect let us get into the specifics. Before you buy the tickets, take a look at the activities you will be able to do with the dolphins at Atlantis Aquaventure:


1. Dolphin Swim

Are you a confident swimmer above the age of 8? Then Dolphin Swim is something you have to try out. It gives you a chance to observe the behavior of dolphins underwater as you swim along with them. It is also an opportunity to go snorkeling in the deep end of the Dolphin Bay lagoon. The clear blue water and the instructor make it absolutely safe to swim to your heart’s content.


2. Dolphin Encounter

Now, do not get disheartened if you do not know how to swim. There are other fun activities you can do with the dolphins, like literally encountering them. Anyone above the age of 2 can take part in a dolphin encounter because the water is only waist-high. The marine mammal specialists will be with you, explaining the interesting facts about dolphins.


3. Dolphin Kayaking

Have you been planning to go kayaking this vacation? You can tick that item off your bucket list as you visit Atlantis because you not only get a chance to kayak but are accompanied by the dolphins as well!  There are options to go kayaking alone or as a couple, and the location is none other than the Dolphin Bay lagoon.


4. Dolphin Meet and Greet

If you are not a fan of getting into the water, then this meet-and-greet option would be perfect for you. It is a completely dry experience where you sit at the shore, and the dolphins will be brought to you by the marine experts. This way, you get to learn more about the dolphins, their anatomy, and so on, without having to actually get into the water.


5. Dolphin Paddle

If you are a good swimmer and are over the age of 12, I highly recommend you try out the paddling experience that Atlantis offers. You get on a paddleboard and paddle in the Dolphin Bay lagoon with the dolphins as they accompany you during the paddling process. It is quite fun, actually, if you can balance yourself in a paddleboard.


6. Dolphin Sunrise

Now this is something open for in-house guests alone, as Dolphin Sunrise, as the name suggests, needs you to be present at Atlantis during the early morning. In this activity, you are ushered to the Dolphin Bay early in the morning, where you get a chance to see the dolphins going about their morning routine in style. It is indeed an excellent opportunity to observe nature so up close and appreciate its beauty. So, if you get a chance to see the dolphin sunrise, do not miss it.

Perks That Come Along With Dolphins

We are not done yet! If you think that’s all you get with a ticket, you are gravely mistaken! There are additional perks you get along with a ticket to see the dolphins. Let us take a look at what they are:


1. Surfs Up Wave Rider

I’ve always been a fan of the movie Surfs Up. How about you? Ever wanted to do those dope surfing moves on your surfboard? Well, here is a chance to actually do it! You get access to the Surfs Up Wave Rider of the Atlantis AquaVenture, where you can make all your surfing dreams a reality. Do not forget to take cool pictures of you surfing in this completely safe water body, because creating memories and storing them is as important as having fun, right? And if the actual sea is too violent for you,  this water rider is 100% safe.


2. Beach

How would a trip to the biggest waterpark in the world be complete without visiting an actual beach? Well, you are in luck because the waterpark also offers you a  chance to unwind and relax completely at their private beach, which is over one kilometer long. After a long day at the park, a few hours to relax is mandatory.


3. Waterpark

Of course, how can we not talk about the actual waterpark itself? As you buy a ticket for the dolphin fun, you also get access to the 105-plus rides at the waterpark. It does not end with the rides, you see. You also get access to all the super dope attractions and locations inside the waterpark. All you have to focus on here is to have as much fun as possible!


4. Whopping Discounts

We all know that the biggest attraction of Atlantis Aquaventure is the Lost Chambers Aquarium. The place has over 65000 marine life in it, making it nothing less than an aquatic wonder. As you access the rides and the dolphins, you also get a same-day discount to view this aquatic wonderland. Make the most of it, folks!

It's Time To Meet The Dolphins!

It is so great to know that you get access to so many sources of entertainment just by buying a ticket to the Atlantis Aquaventure Waterpark! Spending time with the dolphins is fun in itself, and if you want to try out more adventurous activities, there are provisions to do that as well! All in all, this waterpark is an excellent place to visit with your family this holiday season!
