The 8 Realms of SeaWorld Abu Dhabi 

Within the walls of SeaWorld Abu Dhabi lies eight unique realms, each with its own inhabitants and experiences. 

1. One Ocean

And if you feel like indulging in a sweet treat, you can stop by Frozen Treats for an assortment of icy delights, cookies or popcorn.

2. Abu Dhabi Ocean

The Abu Dhabi Ocean realm has interactive touch pools, where you can have a tactile experience with different sea animals, like sharks and rays.

You can also take in one or both of the live pearl diving shows, “A Pearl Diver’s Life” and “The Fisherman and The Mermaid,” which feature spectacular performances telling the tales of Bedouin families who once combed the waters of the Arabian Gulf in search of precious pearls.

And if you’re looking for a slice of retail therapy, Abu Dhabi Ocean doesn’t disappoint. There’s Souk Al-Seef, an authentic Arab marketplace where you can shop like a local. There’s also Dukkan Al Tawash which offers a curated collection of jewelry — a nod to the region’s pearl trawling history.

3. Rocky Point

Rocky Point is a mesmerizing hidden cove set in the American Pacific Northwest. It’s home to The Sea Lions’ Coastal Habitat, where they’re usually seen frolicking in the water and barking out a playful chorus.

While here, you can catch the Sea Lion Presentation featuring some of Rocky Point’s most intelligent sea lions, seals, and otters accompanied by their animal care specialists. You can even feed these majestic animals and have yourself an insta-worthy photo or two. 

And should you feel a little peckish, you can head over to Pretzel Point for some sweet and savory snacks.

This zone features four exhilarating rides: Turtle Twist, OctoZoom, Jelly Plunge and Eel Racer — all suited for both children and adults.

7. Antarctica

Antarctica is the second half of the Polar Ocean realms. The standout feature of this zone is its zoological lighting system that mimics the seasonal changes of Antarctica to create an authentic environment for the six species of penguins that call this place home.
