SeaWorld Abu Dhabi: The Next Generation of Marine Life Theme Parks Takes Shape!

SeaWorld® Abu Dhabi on Yas Island is taking shape and poised to be one of the world’s most magnificent marine life theme parks. The construction of SeaWorld Abu Dhabi, in partnership with SeaWorld® Parks & Entertainment, is 64% complete and on track for completion in 2022. The park will feature the world’s largest marine aquarium, containing 25 million litres of water and housing over 68,000 marine animals, including sharks, schools of fish, manta rays and sea turtles.

Visitors to SeaWorld Abu Dhabi will be welcomed with the “Endless Vista”, a 20m tall vertical window across multiple levels revealing stunning aquatic scenes. The “One Ocean” experience, interlinking six distinct realms throughout the marine-life park, will augment the park’s ability to simulate the natural habitats of different species, living harmoniously as they would in the wild. The park’s design leverages SeaWorld’s more than 55 years of experience in marine research, conservation, and animal welfare.

The Yas SeaWorld® Research and Rescue Center, located adjacent to the aquarium and theme park, will act as an advanced knowledge hub focusing on indigenous Gulf and marine life ecosystems. The center will be the first dedicated marine research, rescue, rehabilitation, and return center in the UAE. Visitors to the center will have the opportunity to see the work of resident scientists and researchers, learn about aquatic animals and participate in tailored educational programs.

Marc Swanson, CEO of SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment, said, “We are honored to partner with Miral to bring SeaWorld’s unforgettable guest experiences and our important mission to Yas Island and the region.” Mohamed Abdalla Al Zaabi, CEO of Miral added, “This is another major addition to Yas Island’s existing immersive experiences and attractions and a testament to achieving our vision of positioning the island as a top global tourism destination.”

SeaWorld Abu Dhabi further supports Miral’s vision to position Yas Island as one of the top global tourist destinations. It joins a unique portfolio of attractions and experiences on the island that includes Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, Yas Waterworld, Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi, and CLYMB Abu Dhabi.

Miral and SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment are committed to exploring long-term sustainability goals for the mega-development and more details will be announced in due course. Get ready for an underwater adventure of a lifetime at SeaWorld Abu Dhabi, where the wonders of the ocean await!
