Educational animal presentations at our park

The educational performances at Dolfinarium

Did you know that the animal presentations at the Dolfinarium are fun ánd very educational? In all eight different animal presentations you can see the animals up close (and you can even pet the sharks and rays!). The caretakers will tell you everything you need to know about all the special marine (mammal) animals during the performance. Your day at the Dolfinarium is therefore not only a fun, but also an educational day out!

Dolphins and other unique marine mammals

Don’t miss the new main show Oceanica! This impressive educational presentations about the natural and unnatural threats to dolphins in nature is a must during your day at the Dolfinarium.

In addition, our dolphins can be seen at two other locations:

  • From behind the glass wall at Onder Odiezee you have direct contact with the dolphins and walruses
  • In the Dolfijnendelta you can see the most beautiful jumps and learn everything about dolphins

But you don’t want to miss all the other sea (mammal) animals either! A total of 10 animal species can be admired in eight educational animal presentations. At the entrance of the park you will receive a map with a timetable of all performances on that day and you can choose which performances you will see. These are our eight animal performances:
