What to see

Underwater Mystery
Dubai Mall

Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo is a one of its own, a unique presentation of marine life in the middle of The Dubai Mall that amazes its visitors for sure. A 10 million-litre tank spread across three floors, consisting of 33,000 aquatic animals and the largest collection of sand tiger sharks is a must watch thing during your trip to Dubai.

The aquarium will catch your attention instantly the moment you pass the large tank on the ground floor of the mall and see millions of beautiful marine lives swimming inside it. We are sure your eyes will be glued to the aquarium and you will ask yourself how they have something like this in the middle of a desert. Let us tell you that is the beauty of Dubai, it offers you experiences you least expect.

Visitors can either enjoy the views of the stunning aquarium from outside or they can buy a ticket to see the marine life more closely strolling through the 48-metre tunnel where the aquarium will envelop you from overhead and around giving you a fish-eye view. A number of different species of fish including sharks and stingrays will be swimming over your head and we advise you to keep your camera ready!

After your short trip through the tunnel, you then head to the third floor for your encounter with King Croc (crocodile) at the Underwater Zoo.  Weighing as much as 14 and a half fully-grown men - very big men - the King Croc is one of the largest reptiles in protected environment today.

You can also take a glass-bottom boat tour, go for a scuba dive, get wet in the shark walker cage, experience cage snorkelling and can get face to face with sharks and feed them. Does this excite you already?
