Dubai Aquarium Ticket with Penguin Encounter at Dubai Mall

Dubai Trip Overview

Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo will now be home to 16 Gentoo penguins! Visitors to The Dubai Aquarium can now learn more about these delightful birds.

Originally from Antarctica, the Gentoo can stand up to a metre tall and weigh up to six kilos. They are excellent divers and can remain underwater for up to seven minutes, in which they can dive to depths of almost 200m.

To make the penguins feel at home, their enclosure will keep the air chilled between 2˚C and 4˚C and water between 5˚C and 7˚C. A special lighting system is in place to simulate the lighting cycle in Antarctica. The enclosure dubbed ‘Penguin Cove’ is designed to keep the birds entertained and even includes a slide for them.
