  • It was truly amazing. The staff is so friendly! I did the tour behind the “scenes” and got to see how they run the aquarium. I loved being here, and the vitality of animals is incredible. Al I can wish for is for everyone visiting the aquarium not to tap, slap and knock on the glass of the fish tanks. It’s not nice and they don’t have to be treated like that by us humans. Respect them and view them peacefully. They are living creatures we don’t get to see so take in the time you spend here. It’s truly a magical experience.
  • A life time experience at Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo. This is really beautiful. You get to see a wide variety of marine animals, insects, reptiles and even birds. I was really amazed to see all of these managed well inside the mall. It is beautiful and in Dubai do not miss this place. It is one of the best experiences you can have. I really enjoyed being here and hope to be back again. Wow... just wow experience. Lots of different types of fishes you may have not seen. But the most exciting part was the shark encountered in a shark cage. It was thrilling to even watch. When I visited they were feeding the fish and it was a good experience to watch it. The aquarium is awesome, they have also kept types of parrots and night creatures at the zoo. Wonderful to see these.
  • Overall an interesting place to visit if you never seen one. It has few cool unique features, however does not live up to it's hype. The huge aquarium itself is seen for free from the outside. In my opinion that is the main attraction. The information provided for each inhabitant of the zoo is unfortunately limited to the name, so you have to Google to know more. Search for tickets online to get a good discount. Took us about 75 minutes to slowly go through the whole exhibition. BTW, if you are ever in Osaka - make sure to visit their aquarium - it is simply amazing!
  • One of the best place to visit in Dubai mall. So peaceful & Energy booster. I killed 1hr just watching them moving slowly... It's just another world. Worth visiting!! Best time visit when they're feeding. Most of the fishes will be active. Enjoyed the time which I spend out there.
  • Cool amazing zoo I will give four stars to it. We purchased ticket of explorer package and that included tunnel, aquarium underwater zoo and boat ride. Although the tunnel was only of around 10 meter or may be little less. There are around 20000 species live and the place is well maintained. You will get to see many types of fish, shark, crocodile, a few birds and all. If you are having kids, then this is a must visit place and they will love to be here. And for photography there are many good options. Will recommend surely. Hit like if you find it useful.
