Istanbul Dolphinaruim

Hi,

In two weeks time we'll be visiting Istanbul, Turkey and we'd like to visit the Istanbul Dolphinaruim, Has anyone been before? If so what are your opinions on it? How would we get there from the sultanamet suits apartments?

Many thanks.

Hi Aishah,

I would very much like to encourage you to NOT visit a Dolphinarium which is basically a dolphin prison. According to the new animal rights law in Turkey, all the dolphinariums will be banned and shut down for good. I hope you would not opt for contributing to the misery of those lovely animals.

Dolphinariums in Turkey are vile :( If you love dolphins do not give your money to these places.Would you want to see someone you loved in prison when they commited no crime?
