Our ticket to The Lost Chambers Aquarium was free with our Hop On & Hop Off Bus tour or our Dolphin Adventure, can't remember which one. It was just okay for me and I would have been a little disappointed had I paid an entrance fee. If you're there at the Atlantis Palm and the Aquaventure Water Park and you're... More

The aquarium is well setup and has some unique attributes and over 65K marine animals, but it's not something you would put on the top 10 things to do in Dubai. If you have exoerienced other aquarium exhibits you know the drill. This one is very large and beautifully presented, but it also is (or at least on the day... More

Nice aquarium with the biggest tank I've ever seen in the centre! We got our tickets free with the Big Bus tour but I would have been annoyed if we had paid full price as the aquarium on the whole doesn't have too many exhibits and doesn't take long to get around.

My dad visited Dubai for the first time and he had the idea of diving in the Persian Gulf. As the diving trip was a full day he didn't want to waste so much time so a friend recommended the diving experiences at the Atlantis. We were a little hesitant about it, but its Dubai so we thought it cant... More

In my opinion if you have seen one aquarium, there is not much to see here. I thought this would be an imaginable experience, but to be honest I have seen better ones.

This really is worth seeing but not very affordable for most families. Exquisitely designed but not that much to see considering the price- not value for money.

Visited twice during recent stay at Atlantis. They have created an underworld that not only amazing water tanks, but the decorative features, the colours, the lighting - it takes you to a different place. I took so many pictures of the aquariums - just beautiful!
