An Oasis of Wonder
Looking for things to do in Phoenix? Dolphinaris Arizona is a must-see oasis in the Sonoran Desert!
Our Dolphin Habitat is truly an oasis of wonder designed to provide the animals with both variety and comfort. Five lagoons totaling nearly 1 millions gallons of saltwater provide the dolphins the opportunity to swim, explore, and interact with guests, trainers, and dolphin companions. Pool water is cooled in the summer, and warmed in the winter, keeping the dolphins (and guests) comfortable throughout the year. In addition, nearly 1/3 of the pool’s surface area is under roof.
A state of the art filtration system keeps the water clean and balanced. The entire water volume is turned over about once every 90 minutes and is moved into the habitat by gravity, not motors, keeping the underwater environment quiet. Come and experience this oasis. You’ll want to come back again and again.
