A must go place for all families when your in Istanbul. Incredible place with a unique captivating show suitable for adults and children of all ages...Great variety of animal and a good laugh. We were all amazed and excited by the dramatic and cheeky display by the dolphins, walrus, seal, and in awe of the baby white whale...Shows are twice daily at 3pm & 5pm and ticket prices are certainly well worth it.
AMAZING, regular admissions is 100 TL and swimming with dolphins is 750 TL for one person 1200 TL for 2 and 1500 for 3. It was an amazing experience one of the best in my life everyone should try this place. And swimming with dolphins should be a must before you leave, in Dubai and the US it’s experience here it’s 240$ for 2 people wow!!!
a must visit place, fun garenteed and an exceptional show with exceptional animals and welcoming hosts visited in October 2018 for the price of 140 TL for the session starts at 5pm
Basically, all you can get here is the 1 hour show. Although watching the show can be entertaining, I find myself wondering how much the animals suffered for the training. Entrance isn't cheap, with ~€20 on average. At other places (say the Netherlands for example) you get to visit the animals and the show for less, and you can easily spend half a day there
You would never regret being here. In love with it & won't mind watching the show again and again.
