  • Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo is one of the largest suspended aquariums in the world. Timings- 10am-12am Location- Dubai Mall You can purchase tickets from various online portals, you get better deals. I recommend you to spend half day at least since it gets interesting if you are nature lover. Thee are lots of things to see and its really knowledgeable specially for kids. Underwater zoo is an amazing experience. The aquarium inside the mall is stunning. The huge glass walls give you a really fantastic view of the variety of animal life they have inside of the tank. Standing outside and looking is all you really need. The tunnel was included in the Dubai pass so we did it. While it is cool, you get the same view from the side as you do in the tunnel. There is an upper floor aquarium that is really cool to go inside and explore. There are lots of different smaller tanks, a few big tanks that hold 2 crocodiles, you can pet sharks, and different birds flying around overhead. This isn't an attraction you would typically expect in a mall, but it is worth the time to explore while you are there
  • Great place with GREAT AMBIENCE. Thousands of water creatures can be seen in Large Aquarium and underwater tunnel. So Many varieties of Marine animals are shown, grown. Well maintained. WORDS ARE NOT ENOUGH. MUST VISIT PLACE. Everyone must see the short film shown inside the zoo in television - that how they grow the fishes, feed them, maintains the correct salinity level in aquarium. VERY INFORMATIVE FOR KIDS. NICE photographs can be clicked.

  • A unique aquarium with unique water-animals. It was a fun being there and observing animals strolling in the water. Every thing was good. One thing I would like to mention is that the entrance ticket was included in my travel package and as observed many visitor were watching the aquarium from outside without any ticket as the aquarium is visible from outside also. So if one has planned the trip on his own then the entry can be skipped and the aquarium can be watched from outside. But for underwater zoo entry should be made. There are many different organisms in the zoo. All were very unique, such beautiful huge size aquarium as I believe its one of the biggest. You can enjoy free view while you walking in Dubai mall as different sea species are swimming in crystal clear water. Meanwhile its payable if you would like to move inside the aquarium tunnel which is more amazing. Hundreds of different kind of species swimming all together peacefully inside a huge big aquarium and every time. . Its amazing view you can enjoy for just free, .Awesome deep tank with Ray fishes and sharks and other fishes with glass walls which u can see from outside, a small tunnel with glass wall n ceiling as u go in, which is very thrilling! Once inside there many beautiful fishes in tanks on display. expensive entry fee. A boat ride, under water cage experience or swim with sharks experience for higher rates. A small reptile section and bird section. An otter interaction session.Overall very good one-time experience.
  • Good experience for first timers. Lots of marines creatures to watch. Good to improve your trivia about aquatic animals. They have different packages. The glass bottom boat ride would take some time and it usually has a long queue. There are some eatery options inside with a few items. They had a sky bridge walk as well which is good. Overall it was a good experience. Especially the kids will love it.
