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.

Completely overpriced for what you get, an attraction that is sooooo over hyped it’s better just to observe the aquarium from the main promenade; for free!!

A mall with an aquarium very happy daughter. Lovely large aquarium. You can see it beautifully from outside. Use the mall escalators to move between floors - that got a bit confusing as it’s not wholly clear.

Hi, Yes, you need to buy a ticket. You can have a look at the Aquarium from outside, but you can’t see the rest of the animals upstairs in the zoo.
