Are you looking for a fun day out but don’t know where to go? How about the Dolfinarium! A wonderful outing to experience together – with friends or with the whole family. Enjoy a day out in the Netherlands – the Dolfinarium is centrally located, which means it’s always close by! The perfect place for an outing with the whole family. Will we be seeing you soon?

Why spend a day out at the Dolfinarium?

The Dolfinarium is the perfect place to spend a day out for all ages. Meet California sea lions or seals from the North Sea, as well as bulky walruses and cheerful dolphins. Visit our enchanting shows and learn all about our animals in the educational areas, Shark Bay and Dolphin Brain. And for a truly unforgettable day out, you can even get into the water with our dolphins or meet sea lions up close.

Having breakfast or sleeping near the dolphins

Are dolphins your favourite animals? How cool would it be to eat with the dolphins, or even stay the night with them? It’s all possible at the Dolfinarium! With the ‘Sleeping near dolphins‘ programme, you get to sleep underwater in the Onder Odiezee Café – and the dolphins swim around you while you’re tucked in for the night. Isn’t that a dream come true? You can also book a breakfast package at the Onder Odiezee Café. That means you get to be the first to enter the park and immediately dive underwater to enjoy a fresh breakfast with your partner, or with the whole family. And you won’t even have to eat fish as the dolphins do.

Fun and action

The Dolfinarium is a zoo, but there’s a lot more to do besides admiring animals! Feed the crabs at the Crab Coast, or put your hand in the water to pet the rays and sharks – are you up to the challenge? If the weather is nice, our water ride Water Fun will be open for all to enjoy, so be sure to bring your bathing suit. And if that’s not enough, there are also four playgrounds where you can climb, clamber and romp around. It’s safe to say there is always something to do at the Dolfinarium!
