Life beneath the surface
Updated on 02 January 2017

Adding to its already expansive close-encounter offering, Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo has another exhilarating underwater experience with the Shark Scooter. Akin to a personal miniature submarine, the immersive experience takes guests deep below the surface of the aquarium in a self-contained scooter-like vehicle. Guided by an expert Al Boom Diving instructor, riders will propel themselves using the electric motor, at speeds of up to 3km/h, allowing users to gracefully venture throughout the main aquarium tank like never before. The bubble helmet provides excellent visibility, whilst the design of the one and two-person scooters offers a safe and comfortable ride. Available 365 days a year at 5pm, 6pm and 7pm the price of Dhs 500 includes entry to the aquarium and a back-of-house tour.
