Located on the shores of the Golden Horn, the Dolphinarium was designed as a place to see and learn about dolphins. There are shows Wed-Friday (check the website for showtimes). With an advance reservation, children can swim with the dolphins, however if you are considering this type of program, you should read the Humane Society's concerns about dolphin swim programs. A restaurant and cafe are available.
