Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo at the Dubai Mall has now become bigger and better! It has now added an exclusive Antarctic exhibit which is a safe shelter for 16 adorable Gentoo Penguins. So are you ready for an icy adventure like no other in Dubai?
With temperatures maintained at 2 to 4 degree Celsius throughout, this purpose-built facility is one of the region’s ultimate attractions for penguin lovers. This not only lets you catch up with penguins , but also gives you the rare chance to know all about these fascinating residents, from its playful antics and sensitive personality to how they are cared for in this setting that painstakingly replicates its natural Sub Antarctic habitat. Besides several amazing segments that make them feel at home (including a slide and the pool), there is even a unique lighting system that mimics the penguins’ annual light cycle.
But, don’t just limit your Dubai Aquarium expedition to Penguin Cove; tear yourself away from these cool inhabitants as your ticket also offers access to close to150 marine species that occupy its colossal tank with over 10 million liters of sea water. See mighty sharks and rays, among other 33,000 creatures, effortlessly swimming around. You’ll further get to walk through its breathtaking 48-meter-long Aquarium tunnel and even step into its other attractions such as the Underwater Zoo and Underwater Observatory.
