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.

This Aquarium was much better than expected. Really a place well worth visiting. The first exhibits, would you believe in an aquarium, were some colourful, very noisy parrots! We saw fish we had never seen before, the fish tanks seemed to go on for ever,...More

The aquarium was part of the deal with Burj Khalifa. Interesting visit with loads to see. A must visit if you have kids. We took some beautiful photos of marine life, both in the main aquarium and in the zoo on level 1.
