Discover the wonderful water world up close during a day out at the Dolfinarium. Nowhere else in the Netherlands will you enjoy so many special marine mammals as at the Dolfinarium. This special park has not been named Europe's largest marine mammal park for nothing. Meet the dolphins up close and learn all about this clever animal species, enjoy the heaviest resident; the walruses, be surprised by the fast sea lions or meet the slippery rays. Only at the Dolfinarium do you get the opportunity to pet rays, sharks and other fish from the North Sea. How cool is that! During the educational presentations, it is even possible to feed these creatures. Do you dare?

The shows at the Dolfinarium are super fun and incredibly educational! In all eight different shows, you actually see the animals up close. The keepers will tell you everything you need to know about these special marine mammals. You definitely don't want to miss the fantastic dolphin show either!!!

You will feel like a fish in the water at the water attractions. Enjoy splashing yourself after watching one of the shows. Slide down one of the 7 fast water slides, splash in the water or enjoy a nice drink on the terrace. A great day for young and old alike.

Just 23 minutes away, you are enjoying the perfect day at the Dolfinarium in your hotel room with the whole family! With its spacious layout, our Family Suite is excellent for stays with children.
