Owner description: Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo is one of the most captivating attractions in Dubai. Located at The Dubai Mall, the largest mall in the world, offering a memorable journey into ocean life. With capacity to hold 10 million litres of water, Dubai Aquarium is one of the largest indoor aquariums in the world and it illuminates the marvels of the ocean floor, showcasing one of the most diverse collections of aquatic life. Located just above the aquarium, Underwater Zoo brings visitors up close with penguins, piranhas, crabs, water rats, sea horses, jellyfish and plenty more. A fascinating new addition at Underwater Zoo is King Croc, regarded as nature's rare phenomenon and one of the world's largest reptiles - at over 5 meters long and weighing an imposing 750 kg plus. Underwater Zoo regularly hosts innovative exhibits. One such exhibit, 'UAE's Night Creatures' presents the experience of nightfall in the desert as creatures of the dark.

Not the best aquarium I saw but still worth the visit. The number and variety of fishes is impressive so is the tunnel where you will see sharks.

This is something like Ushaka Marine world in Durban SA or The Two Oceans Aquarium in Cape Town SA. A different experience as this is located in the Dubai Mall. Did not think much of the zoo but good species of fishes. Excellent like you in a real forest.

Don't waste your time. I wasn't really impressed with the aquarium or underwater zoo, its over hyped. It was really small. I think I wasted my money, its best to just take pictures from outside like the locals.

You may visit this during your visit to Burj Dubai, Dubai Fountains and the Dubai Mall. But you need to keep about one and a half hours to see this specataculat collection of underwater life. When you walk through the glass caves, you can see the large fish swimming over you. Occasionally you can see scuba divers inside the glass cases alongside the fish. An enjoyable site for adults and children
