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.

Worth the trip as it is a landmark but there is little of substance behind the big wall. You could see more at a normal aquarium. Some of the enclosures are too small for the animals inside, eg the crocodiles are enormous for their space.

One of the largest aquarium. However if you have seen aquariums at other places then it can be skipped.

It is like a very small zoo inside the Mall. Very few exhibits for such a price. I would recommend you to visit the zoo instead of the Aquarium

The underwater zoo was average as the walkway wasn't too long, but creating such a thing inside a Mall itself is quite a task, not to forget they have the King Croc inside the Mall. Overall a great experience.

Surprisingly the place offers a great variety of fishes, turtles, and desert animals, as well as alligators. This is a great opportunity to show those animals to kids as the place is designed very smartly for them. I was not so happy to see penguins...More
