Most People In Arizona Don’t Know About This Magical Zooquarium Hiding In Plain Sight

The last thing you’d expect to find in a state widely known for its desert climate is an attraction with pools filled with one million gallons of sea water, but that’s just what you’ll find at this zooquarium in Scottsdale, Arizona – and more!

Dolphinaris Arizona is located at 9500 East Vía de Ventura, Scottsdale, AZ 85256. They are open seven days a week from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Book your encounter in advance at this link; prices vary based upon the encounter you select and any add-on options. More information is available from the official website of Dolphinaris Arizona.
