Polar Ocean World, Qingdao

3.5
#1 of 11 in Zoos & Aquariums in Shandong
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.

  • Like to see the white whale dolphin animal performance to Qingdao Haichang Polar Ocean World Bar, in the performance hall, Happy Theater, can watch the polar bears, dolphins, penguins, seals and other animals performance, if you are lucky enough, but also close to the white whale interaction, say my friend was smoked with the white whale interaction, touched the white whale fin, Also let the white whale gently rubbed down the cheek, she is happy not to do not ~

  • Nice and clean 3 levels in the main building which is spacious for all the wild sea animals but the facility itself is a bit outdated. Lots shops along the road are closed even it is still around the end of summer. Shows are nice but the sound system isn’t that good, hard to hear sometimes.
  • Very nice place for weekend fun
  • 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
  • Overcrowded and unethical
  • The daughter likes to see the sea creatures Penguin Moby Dick Dolphin Polar bear sea lion seals all kinds of fish, the door also has a sea of small beach gulls, nearby there are recreational places, feel great
