  • Brilliant aquarium and great to cool off after the water park. It was v.quiet when we were there and peaceful. Also saw fish (fish snakes!) We'd never seen before.  more »
  • Interesting place for people who do not dive with the bottle in the seas, many things from the marine life can be seen almost at your fingertips, the whole tour is a little lengthy, and the price as it is in Dubai-space:)

  • Nice place to visit. This place is full of joy and happiness. Dubai govt. Has maintained this place as good as people and the species of under water life water don't feel bad. It's look like a Sea. Everyone felt very happy to see the types of fishes there. It's awesome. When I go there with my friends it's amazing. Specially the children's were enjoyed the most. So I recommend every person to visit this place.it situated in the The Dubai Mall.I wants to tell all the entry at this place is chargable if you go inside the under water zoo.if you see from outside there is no charge.
  • This is probably one of the largest aquarium's you would have ever seen. Located within the Dubai Mall, they have beautiful sharks, stingrays, etc. The place is very well maintained by the staff. There are ticket vending machines right outside where you can choose from a variety of experiences such as the King Croc Encounter, etc. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because the whole experience is a bit expensive. However, you can choose to view and enjoy the sight of all the fishes even from outside. In all, it's a very calming experience. It is suitable for all age groups. Kids would particularly enjoy it more.
