See Life at the Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo

The designers of Dubai seem to stop at nothing when it comes to big ideas, large spaces, huge opportunities, giant buildings, and massive manmade projects. The city is full of surprises around every corner and is redefining the term “Over The Top”. From the heights of the Burj Khalifa to the extravagance of the Dubai Mall, this city just takes modern thought and architecture to a new level. The Dubai Mall is the world’s largest and most-visited retail and entertainment location with a shockingly large floor area of 5.9 million square feet. It houses over 1200 shops and a plethora of food and entertainment zones.

Dubai Aquarium's Rare Surprises

The Dubai Aquarium is one of the extravagant and enticing displays of creativity you can feast your eyes on in this city of plenty. If you’ve ever imagined being able to walk through the sea and watch the life underneath go about their daily lives, you can make that a reality at the tunnel in the Dubai Aquarium. Walk beneath and next to thousands of aquatic animals in this exotic underwater aquarium in Dubai. Boasting of one of the largest suspended aquariums in the world, the Aquarium tank, which holds over 10-million litres of water, is located on the ground level of the mall. Enjoy a nice long walk through the 48-metre tunnel that has a 270-degree view of the underwater world. Watch your kids’ jaws drop when they set their eyes on unique and never-before-seen animals floating casually above ground. Speaking of jaws, the aquarium houses the largest collection of Sand Tiger Sharks in the world. Your Dubai Mall aquarium ticket price is valid for a whole day and includes multiple entries within that day.

More Thrills to Complete Your Visit

For those who want to take home a more thrilling experience and want to do something different, get ready to dive into the action with some cage snorkelling which gives you all the thrill of a close encounter within the safety of a large cage. The Shark Walker experience allows you the comfort of a helmet and a spacious cage so you can comfortably experience the life under.
