For those who prefer things a little calmer, Yas Marina offers access to over 200 uninhabited islands. Unbeknown to many, exotic fish, coral and turtles are easily spotted. Seven species of dolphin and eight species of whale have been recorded and the bottlenose dolphin is a common sight. Abu Dhabi has the second largest population in the world of the endangered marine mammal – the dugong, and the critically endangered Hawksbill sea turtles hatch on nearby Saadiyat Island too. Yas Marina is also one of the WWF’s partners for turtle adoption and Yas Marina members are given turtle adoption packs as part of their contract.
