Dolphin Park

While traveling through a country as vast and multifaceted as Iran, you are likely to encounter many rare natural sights. If you have had enough of deserts, mountains and forests, make sure to visit Iran’s southern coasts, north of the Persian Gulf. Once there, it is only a short boat ride to extraordinary islands such as Kish, Qeshm and Hormuz. Kish is the most visited island in Iran among Iranians and Kish tours are very popular all through the year. The reason is the abundance of recreational complexes, peaceful beaches and of course great shopping malls. Families with children traveling to Kish never miss a visit to the Dolphin Park during a Kish day tour. As the first dolphinarium in Iran, Kish Dolphin Park has been providing people coming to the island with a unique experience. The fascinating aspects of the park aren’t limited to funny romping dolphins. The complex is also home to many other species of mammals including sea lions and walruses. There is also a large aviary in the park with one of the largest collections of birds in Iran. 57 species of birds from all five continents are kept in the aviary or Bird Garden as it is more commonly known. The park lies southeast of the island and it is a short drive from the city center. The tickets are sold at the entrance and cost between 20-25 USD.

Add the wealth of historic sites and the first-rate quality of Kish hotels to the features above and you understand why Kish is most people’s number one choice in the south of Iran. In what comes below we will present some of the most important of Kish’s tourist attractions.

 

1. Harireh Ancient City

More than eight centuries ago, there was a city on the island of Kish known in the region as a major center of commerce. But that city does not exist anymore. Although there are just ruins from what was used to be Harireh, they beam with the authenticity of historic monuments. The historic site includes a mosque, a public bath, a glass making workshop and a mansion. There are also subterranean canals under the site known as qanats. These were used to channel the drinking water to the city.

2. Grand Recreational Pier

This is a beautifully-made pier used for many recreational activities including a great variety of sea entertainment. There are boat and jet ski rentals and places specially designed for scuba diving. But the main attraction of the pier for people is its function as a spectacular promenade. One that takes them deep (about 459 meters) into the sea. Together with the superb City Park, the pier is the favorite hang-out area in Kish, Iranians’ favorite vacation spot.

3. Kariz Underground City

We have already mentioned qanats in the current article but what you will come across in Kariz is a completely different thing. You will enter a maze of qanats each leading to another one all placed deep under the ground.

4. Greek Ship

In 1966 a large ship that belonged to a Greek company ran aground on the coast of Kish island. All efforts to pull the ship back into the free waters proved in vain and it was ultimately abandoned. What is special about a derelict ship you might ask. Well you have to wait till the sunset to see the sublime figure of the Greek Ship mingling with all the colors of the dying sun.
