Full description
Discover a fascinating aquatic world with a day admission ticket to the Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo. The 10-million-liter tank is home to more than 33,000 aquatic animals, comprising over 140 species. There are more than 300 sharks and rays living in the tank, including the world’s largest collection of sand tiger sharks. Just above the aquarium is the Underwater Zoo. Get up close to penguins, piranhas, seahorses, jellyfish and more. Step inside the Submersible Simulator for a virtual adventure among dugongs, whale sharks and many other sea creatures. The Underwater Zoo provides an interactive approach to educating children and visitors on the ecology and sustainability of marine life. The journey consists of three ecological zones: Rainforest, Rocky Shore, and Living Ocean. The Penguin encounter allows you to get face to face with a colony of 16 Gentoo penguins residing at the new Penguin Cove exhibit along with a zookeeper. This exciting encounter starts with an educational video about the incredible Antarctic birds and their original habitat. Next, visitors get to meet the Gentoo Penguins, enjoy exceptional photo opportunities, and experience up-close penguin interaction.

This is great for any family or individual. I recommend adding one of the extras to see what goes on behind the scenes in relation to the work the aquarium does regarding feeding the many fish and other animals, the reproduction of some of the aquarium species, and how they help to protect the environment. My further recommendation is to take your time going through the aquarium and underwater zoo to fully appreciate what it has to offer.

The Aquarium is good to spend time with your kids. My Son of 6 years loved it. With the explorer ticker you are allowed to see the inside of the Aquarium as how the maintain or how they run this Aquarium. You can feed the fish for a cost or you can see how they feed the fish. They take you for a glass bottom boat ride(which they call as submarine) in the Aquarium. Over all it is good to visit and approx 3-4 hrs required for this activity.

The aquarium and the underwater zoo was a great experience. We thoroughly enjoyed the visit. It was worth taking the Explorer ticket as we could have a look at the breeding and feeding stations as well. Well explained by the team there on the ground. The best part was the glass boat ride which is worth the wait (had to wait for an hour due to heavy rush). The be able to look at Sharks and fishes underneath your seat through the glass was thrilling.
