Construction work is set to be completed later this year (2022) on the world's largest aquarium.

Slated for a 2023 opening, SeaWorld Abu Dhabi will feature six different realms offering immersive experiences – as well as dynamic habitats, housing different species together, as they are in their natural habitat.

Located on Yas Island, the aquarium is set to house more than 68,000 marine animals, including sharks, schools of fish, manta rays and sea turtles.

It will also be home to Yas SeaWorld Research and Rescue Center, the UAE’s first dedicated marine research, rescue, rehabilitation and return centre providing facilities to support regional and global conservation efforts.

The aquarium is being developed in partnership by SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment and Miral, an Abu Dhabi-based curator of attractions and visitor experiences.

Mohamed Abdalla Al Zaabi, CEO of Miral said: “SeaWorld Abu Dhabi will be a next-generation marine life park – the world’s largest marine aquarium and the UAE’s first dedicated research centre to study and care for animals.

"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 for residents and visitors alike.”
​​
SeaWorld Abu Dhabi will feature an “Endless Ocean” theme, which aims to encapsulate the expanse and scale of the marine display for guests.

The design is based on a unified “One Ocean” experience, interlinking the six distinct realms throughout the building.

Guests will be encouraged to explore the natural underwater environments via immersive storytelling techniques and technologies, to further deepen guests' appreciation and understanding of ocean life.
