Dubai continues to
surprise the world with its new and unique attractions, and the Penguin Cove is
the newest of the lot. A part of the well-loved Dubai Aquarium, the Penguin
Cove is the new home to 16 Gentoo penguins (8 females and 8 males), which were
brought from a facility in the USA.
The Penguin Cove is a
special temperature-controlled facility that has been created to replicate the
Sub-Antarctic environmental conditions. To make the penguins feel right at
home, the temperature of the place is kept between 2 and 4 degree Celsius,
while the temperature of the water is kept between 5 and 7 degree Celsius.
There is also a special lighting system that mirrors the penguins' annual light
If you want to meet
these interesting birds, you can book tickets for penguin cove, which would
give you the chance to have a unique encounter with the penguins. These tickets
only give access to the Penguin Cove and not to the aquarium. If you want to
see the Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo, you would have to book separate
tickets for the same.
