Dubai’s aim for diversification is purposely intended to create other forms of economic wealth apart from the primary oil resources. In the bid to establish this movement, Dubai Dolphinarium was created and developed to provide entertainment, education and environmental beauty for local residents and foreign visitors. It can also be seen as a vision of developing a possible source of income outside oil concerns and in the process, entrenching the need for dolphins and other aquatic animal protection. From the looks of things, the plan is going on smoothly and successfully.
What is Dubai Dolphinarium?
It is basically an aquarium where fishes are kept for entertainment and aesthetic purposes. In light of this, Dubai has come up with the idea of keeping dolphins for no other purposes than education, entertainment and conservation. There are a lot of things about dolphins that most people do not know about unlike fishes. For this reason, the authorities in Dubai Dolphinarium organize a center of dolphin attraction to double up as a sort of educational enterprise. Do you know that dolphins as big as they are, can swim in any position you can possibly imagine? Yes, that is true and more; many more shocking disclosures await you as you avail yourself to the pleasant sights from the aquatic entertainers – the dolphins.
The Dolphinarium was established in 2008 as an attempt by the Dubai marine world at the Creek Park that was initially scheduled to commence operations in 2007. It features facilities like gift shops, a Happy Valley restaurant and a photo shop. You can shoot pictures with dolphins, buy different dolphin complementary items for use as souvenirs and even swim with dolphins! Added to the facilities and attractions are the dolphin and seal shows. The venue is also fully air conditioned (first ever).
