Approx £20 a pop. The zoo is excellent, lots to see explore. Tunnel is a joke (it's not The Deep or Blue Planet) now here near and the boat trip with the wait and the life jackets etc is a complete damp squid. Worth £20 for the underwater zoo though.

I took my kids here during the summer holidays at it was too hot to be outside. I didn't realize that there was more to it than just the tunnel that you walk under. The aquarium on the upper level was fantastic and feeding the fish was great fun. My kids absolutely loved going here.

My name is khalil and i'm from dubai. i went to this zoo with my family. i enjoyed my visit. You can also see the tunnel from outside, it is very impressive like that but I suggest you to go inside for an amazing feeling. You should go there to take nice pictures for memory and see underwater zoo.

Just a lovely place to be, immersed in the ocean surrounded by wild creatures that at this time is friendly enough to contained and be appreciated. Worth seeing and enjoying the moment.

This is a really nice aquarium for being inside of the Mall. I really enjoyed it even though it’s smaller. It took me about 1 hour to go through everything.

The tank capacity is enormous. Sharks were at the vicinity of all the other fishes. The distinction of the food chain is not visible. anyway that is the ubiquitous beauty of every aquarium in this category. People who are visiting this attraction for the first time must note down an important thing. There is a separate fee for the Dubai... More
