We visited the Lost Chambers and signed up for the lesser known ‘Fish Tales Tour’ . I felt compelled to write this review as Kavindu was our guide of the Aquarium and the Fish Hospital . He was so knowledgeable, interactive , professional and friendly and we learnt so much about the different fish, rays, sharks and jellyfish in the care of the Atlantis. The Fish tales tour is a fascinating insight into the behind the scenes care that goes into these beautiful creatures . Kavindu really made an effort to explain as much as possible , taking his time and showing us every inch of the facility ! Thanks so much Kavindu !

I am a PADI IDC Staff Instructor with over 3000 dives and was with my partner spending a few days at the Atlantis. She wanted me to dive in the aquarium so she could take photos.
I was accompanied by Mila and he was very professional before the dive, throughout the dive and after.
Thank you Mila, you were great and the other members of the team as well.
It was a very calm and agreable experience I recommend to all divers and sea lovers.
Thanks so much.

My husband booked and paid for a scuba diving experience at The Lost Chambers Aquarium so I had no chance to opt out! I have a big fear of going underwater so I would like to thank my diving instructor Cliffer for being so patient with me. It took me a while to even dip my head in the water and I only went as deep as 4 metres out of 10 but it was still a big achievement. Definitely a great experience for water lovers!

My dive instructor was Amir! He was awesome - very professional and knowledgeable. This was my 75th dive but I’ve never done it in a large aquarium with over 250 species. The guide did a great job handling a 14 year old young diver. The equipment was New. I would definitely go again. I would recommend bringing your own go pro. The pictures are over priced but I appreciated the camera guy. It was really nice to just dive again. I saw 4 different kinds of sharks - they left us alone for the most part. Lots of manta and sting rays. It’s one of those experiences you have to try. There wasn’t any hassle or worry everything was provided and handled for us. I highly recommend going if you haven’t.

Anyone who has visited Singapore Aquarium should give this attraction a miss. Not much to see the entire site can be completed in 30 minutes. The price is very high compared to what you actually see inside. Not worth it.

I chose to dive in the largest aquarium 18.01.2020.

I was very excited as I am an experienced diver yet I was not impressed with the extortionate prices to dive in dubai with other diving centres in dubai.
Seeing as I was going for the day to atlantis waterpark I booked my ticket to dive with the sharks, fish, Ray's 650,000 of them.

I was dissapointed firstly with the cost if almost £300 for 30mins dive. But it was an experience so I paid for it.
All equipment included. A debrief. When booking my ticket No my dive certificates were not checked.
The debrief was great but simple. No basic explanation how to equalize etc etc (as I was in a group of 4. 1 who had limited english and yes was supposedly my buddy but he was not at all close or beside me on the dive)

Back to the dive, there is a slight current in the aquarium. I used my go pro hero 6 camera to take pictures. Hugely dissapointed as my pictures were blurry most of them.
However there was a camera man, although each picture was costing between £10-15 each.
Diving with the sharks, Ray's and fish was amazing a great experience.
In a confined space so I was very comfortable and happy. Had it been in an open space I would have ditched my dive buddy.
As I got out and got ready to view my pictures at the kiosk I was praying that the pictures were decent enough to even buy them although having spent so much money already what was an extra £15 for a great photo right?
I had 24 pictures of my own to scroll through. Out the 24 not 1 picture had me and a shark or a ray! Out the 24 only about 4 of me was looking and I can make out it was actually me. Was I dissapointed YES! Very much so as I paid a hell of a lot of money for this special occasion.

If you want to dive go to OMAN. My trip is limited, i have not drive abroad so it would be another 2hrs drive each way from dubai.

Atlantis shark dive do I recommend it? Yes and No. If you have the money yes
Was the experience great? 15mins No due to the dive buddy!!!
Was the pictures great NO.
Was it money well spent No.

Atlantis water park dubai - shark dive. It is too pricey. The camera man needs replacing and huge disappointment.

I went there in the monorail to have the whole experience. If you are taking the monorail expecting to see The Palm itself, forget it, all you will see is buildings and houses and for a few seconds, the Atlantis Hotel. The ride is nice, but 30 AED per person for a round trip, overpriced.
The aquarium is medium size, very illustrative, I personally enjoyed it a lot, since I really like fishes and I like to read what kind are they and what they eat and how they live and I really enjoy looking at them, the way they swim, etc. If you don't do this and you will just fast walk between the windows all you will see is a big fish tank and stay there for 10 or 15 minutes and even end up hungry because there are lobsters also.
However, even though I like to see the fishes, 85 AED the ticket with my residence discount. I still think is overpriced, like everything in Dubai!!!
But I enjoyed it.

We recently visited the lost Chambers in Dubai For New Years Day 2020. The Chambers themselves is very unique in the décor. Although the variety of sealife wasn't very diverse, it was still very nice. Approximately one hour is what it took us to see the Lost Chambers.

We also had the unique opportunity to do the Dive Discovery. As uncertified Divers, it was a great way to be up close with the fish and have certified instructors with us, coaching along the way. After a 30 minute class, we were properly fitted with our equipment and did some emergency drills in the shallow end of the Aquarium tank. Once we demonstrated to our instructors we could accomplish these tasks, they led us into the main tank, Ambassador Lagoon!

We did a 30 minute dive. our instructors not only assisted us with correct techniques, but were also excited to show us the unique fish around us. I cant say enough about how helpful the dive instructors are.

There is an underwater photographer capturing your memories, but the photo packages are very expensive.

Overall, if you love aquariums, this is a must do!!

Overall, nice aquarium but must say the length of the visit and insightfulness doesn't justify the entry price.

For about EUR 30 (incl. some reduction), I would expect an attraction which takes longer than 1hr to visit and have more insightful / entertaining explanations. Here you just have about 20 aquariums with different species. If you don't make the visit entertaining for yourself, you end up doing the tour in less than an hour. Info is provided on ipads hanging on the walls, but not so informative.

On the positive side, the surroundings are nicely done in atlantis-theme (albeit including some fake Atlantis facts), it wasn't busy when we were there, people were friendly and we got a discount with our Emirates boarding pass.

The Lost Chambers Aquarium, located in The Atlantis on the Palm Jumeirah, consists of some 12 aquariums displaying verious kinds of sealife creatures. At the center of it, you'll find a hugh tank with many big fish, notably sharks, rays, and napoleon lipfish. It's highly impressive.
All the aquariums and actually the entire experience, is themed around the lost city "Atlantis". It's done very well, but all in all does not look very natural. It was a bit too "artificial" for our taste.
Not surprisingly, the prices are on the upper end. Even considering the luxury environment and exclusive locating, we consider the experience to be overpriced.
