Overview

Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo is one of the most captivating attractions in Dubai. Located at The Dubai Mall, the largest mall in the world, offering a memorable journey into ocean life. With capacity to hold 10 million litres of water, Dubai Aquarium is one of the largest indoor aquariums in the world and it illuminates the marvels of the ocean floor, showcasing one of the most diverse collections of aquatic life. Located just above the aquarium, Underwater Zoo brings visitors up close with penguins, piranhas, crabs, water rats, sea horses, jellyfish and plenty more. A fascinating new addition at Underwater Zoo is King Croc, regarded as nature's rare phenomenon and one of the world's largest reptiles - at over 5 meters long and weighing an imposing 750 kg plus. Underwater Zoo regularly hosts innovative exhibits. One such exhibit, 'UAE's Night Creatures' presents the experience of nightfall in the desert as creatures of the dark.

How cool was this experience! So many fishes and sharks to see. plus very affordable. If your from New York you'll love this since NY aquariums are very small.

It’s a huge, beautiful aquarium in the middle of a massive mall. Totally worth walking by and watching the fish for a bit. Many children/families hanging out. The Cheesecake Factory is right across from it, so dinner can be eaten in full view of the...More

To be honest I found it overrated. If you have been to Barcelona or London ones this would disappoint you

It's good for someone who has not been to any aquarium. If you have visited Singapore or any such aquarium then you are definitely not going to like this. In fact it is better to see it from outside without taking a ticket.

You get good enough views from the Dubai Mall. You go through the tunnell then make your way up to the next floor for the main area. Not very big and would not return.

Nothing as imagined. The free aquarium from outside is more interesting than the inside tour. A only one time visit! I would say don't go by the pictures and don't go with high expectations.
