How are places like this even able to operate. Using animals as entertainment is incredibly revolting. A walrus playing a saxophone? what the actual #%$!

More than I hoped

Hello,
I wanted to visit him considering that I really like dolphins. I saw a very beautiful and diverse show starring the following animals: beluga, walruses, dolphins and a seal. Even if much more could have been done in that location, the show was worth it and I would gladly see it again.
Thank you very much to all the trainers.

Various sea creatures performing party tricks.

Superb, enjoyed the show with the family very much which lasted just under an hour. A number of highly trained sea mammals performing their party pieces such as a giant Walrus playing the saxophone then goes onto serenade a female friend, blowing, snorting and whistling at pre determined intervals. Sea lion clapping and standing as well as performing in the water. Don't want to give too much away but a white whale makes an appearance with the show culminating in a triumvirate of dolphins defying gravity and leaping all over the place. Quite spectacular. Our hotel was in the Tophane district of Istanbul and a taxi to the Dolphinarium which is in the Eyup area cost us 37 Turkish lira.

This is one of the amazing places and shows i have been in it.

The show starts 11 am and 2 pm

You need to be there atleast before 15 minutes to take the tickets

The ticket prices are high comparing to other tourism places in Turkey

160 LT for adult
130 LT for childs 3 to 11

There is also VIP seats which i dont recommend at all as there is any premium except middle seat to the pool

The show is amazing and the coaches are well trained

They show dolphines, white whale and sea dogs

You can take picture with them for 100 LT per photo for maximum of 4 people per family

The quality of the picture is not that much ( i dont like it)

A great place to enjoy with a kid. The show is one hour and it is amazing. The price is about 50 euro for an adult and a kid, which is pretty good deal.

Wonderful show - expensive ticket

Wonderful show but too expensive, it cost me TL 160 per adult and TL 130 for a child, and they charge TL 150 for a photo with the dolphin. I have seen similar show elsewhere at lower price

We went to this place last week and it was very nice. I would absolutely recommend it .. the only thing I did not like was the interruption during the show (for taking photos with the dolphins)

Excellent show
Aug 2019 • Family
We loved each and every minute of the show. From the seal to the dolphins, to the rate white dolphin and finally the amazing walrus. The walrus had a sense of humor of its own. He laughed and joked and teased his trainer and splashed water on the audience. I think we enjoyed even more than our kids😂. The ticket is 160 tl for adults and 130 tl for children. But it was worth it. Taking photos with the dolphin is another 150 tl

Such an entertainment!

The show was very well done. They started on time. The walrus show is hilarious! The dolphins are magnificent and the beluga whale is a must see! The auditorium could use a little more light. All the pictures I took were dark due to the dim lighting there.
