  • This is worth the price, get the underwater zoo combo ticket. It's not the Atlanta aquarium, for sure, but they have a wide variety of fish and other creatures. There are many upgrade levels, includin...  more »

  • 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, of whom i had never seen many before.
  • Another tourist attraction in Dubai in which both adults and kids will surely enjoy. A lot of activities that you can do within the aquarium including diving, shark/fish- cage feeding and if you don't want to get wet then try boat riding instead. You can also hop-in to there mini underwater zoo and take bunches of pictures from smallest creatures. The entrance fee is quite expensive but they also have deals/offers for packages. What I also love in this place are the people working together to make your day fun and so much unforgettable.
  • 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 I watch the view I wonder how its possible to keep sharks with other kind of fishes and all are playing peacefully. Its amazing view you can enjoy for just free, I visited different aquariums in many countries but this one was the most fascinating and wonderful.
  • Dubai mall has a really Amazing Aquatic Place where several species of Aquatic animals are there for you, it will totally make you feel as if you’re in there with Them. They’ve made it really good. One who loves aquatic creatures must visit, it’s a perfect place to experience it.😃 I purchase the Combo ticket, I experienced that those who had not purchase the tickets can also view the aquarium from the other side totally. So there’s an option if you wish to take the glimpse of aquarium and not interested to purchase the ticket you can take this option too.
  • After the tunnel, proceed upstairs to a fascinating aquarium. Highlight was the guided tour of the top of the tank area and photographs presented in a fact-filled book. Our first guide was exceptionally enthusiastic and well informed. We would have appreciated a guide to take us up the 2 floors between the entrance to the aquarium and the main section. Nevertheless, a wonderful experience for adults and children.
