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.

Title says it all, WOW, what a place.

We spent an entire afternoon at the Aquarium, so much to see and do and very helpful and knowledgable guides, nothing was too much trouble for them.
An absolute must if you visit Dubal Mall, yea thats the hard part to understand, this is inside a shopping mall!

If you are first timer and have never seen an aquarium than you can go and spend some money, otherwise there are many other great attractions in Dubai which you can enjoy. Thats my view only

It's enormous - it sits in the dubai mall and without even going inside you can have a great browse at the aquarium. The price of the ticket includes a few goodies on the way out as well as ride on the boat which floats on top of the aquarium - that's how big it is! It may not contain the largest variety of fish that a discerning aquarium fan may require but you have the staples of a good aquarium here, including sharks. It's easy to find as it's the centrepiece of the dubai mall - itself easy to find as it's the biggest mall in the world and takes up a lot of downtown dubai.

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.
