Polar Ocean World, Qingdao

(240+ reviews on the web)
Zoo / Aquarium
Feel the chill at Polar Ocean World, an aquarium with a particular emphasis on the wildlife found at each pole. See bottlenose dolphins, sea lions, walruses, whales, sharks, and arctic wolves at the facility, as they swim, laze around, and feed in enclosures designed to resemble their natural habitat. Expert trainers put on regular performances with the animals, so pull up a seat at the main theater to watch the synchronized routines. Note that some visitors have reported poor conditions for the animals--read up on the latest reviews before going, or consider an alternative attraction. Work out when and for how long to visit Polar Ocean World and other Qingdao attractions using our handy Qingdao vacation builder.

  • This park buys its dolphins and false killer whales from the Taiji drive hunts, animals are dying horrible deaths because you buy tickets to see them. DONT VISIT ANY PARK WHO BUY DOLPHINS FROM JAPAN
  • 看得不是动物,都是人,观感太差。 动物们都是悲伤的眼神,任何海洋世界和动物园都是对动物的摧残。
  • 环境不错,配套一般
  • 我喜欢,哈哈
