SeaWorld Abu Dhabi, the highly anticipated marine-life theme park on Yas Island, is scheduled to open on May 23, according to Miral, the property developer responsible for the project. The park will boast the region's largest multi-species aquarium, with over 150 species, including sea turtles, sharks, manta rays, reptiles, amphibians, and invertebrates, all in more than 58 million liters of water. Covering a total area of approximately 183,000 sq m, the facility will be spread over five indoor levels.
Guests can experience close animal encounters, rides, dining, and shopping opportunities in eight themed environments. Additionally, the UAE's first dedicated marine research, rescue, rehabilitation, and return center will be part of the project. "The marine life park will embed Sheikh Zayed's legacy and profound respect for nature and all its beauty, as well as play a key role in promoting environmental awareness and protecting marine life in Abu Dhabi, the UAE and the wider region,” said Miral Chairman Mohamed Khalifa Al-Mubarak.
The SeaWorld Abu Dhabi is committed to sustainability and aims to inspire the next generation of conservationists and marine life scientists while fostering a deeper appreciation for the natural world. Spaces have been designed to mimic social seasonal patterns for animals and provide the health benefits of full spectrum light. The park was built to allow marine creatures to live in dynamic habitats alongside other fish, birds, and animals as they would in nature, as reported by WAM.
