Early this week, it was announced that significant progress is being achieved in the construction of SeaWorld Abu Dhabi, the next generation of marine life theme parks. The announcement was wade by Miral, Abu Dhabi’s leading curator of magnetic experiences, in partnership with SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment. The project is expected to be completed in 2022.
The marine-life park, which is set to feature the world’s largest and most expansive marine aquarium is currently 64% complete. It will contain 25 million litres of water and housing more than 68,000 marine animals, including sharks, schools of fish, manta rays and sea turtles.
A main focal view of the aquarium will present visitors with the “Endless Vista”, an impressive 20 meters tall vertical window across multiple levels revealing stunning aquatic scenes. Yas SeaWorld Research and Rescue Center will act as an advanced knowledge hub focusing on indigenous Gulf and marine life ecosystems.
Accessible to visitors by reservation, the Research and Rescue Center will also demonstrate the work from resident scientists and researchers, enriching guests’ knowledge of aquatic animals, and offering tailored educational learning programs for both local and international schools and touring groups.
We are delighted to be partnering with SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment in developing this next generation marine life park, that is set to feature the world’s largest marine aquarium and the UAE’s first dedicated research center to study and care for animals.

The “Endless Ocean” themed aquarium encapsulates the expanse and scale of the marine display for guests and is one element featured within a unified “One Ocean” experience, interlinking six distinct realms throughout the marine-life park. The “One Ocean” narrative will augment the park’s ability to simulate the natural habitats of different species, living harmoniously as they would in the wild.
Guests will be encouraged to explore these natural underwater environments via immersive storytelling techniques and the latest cutting-edge technologies, further deepening an appreciation and understanding of ocean life.
