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.

Planned the visit for my 4 year old and i'm happy that she enjoyed every bit of it... Easy to access right in the heart of the Dubai Mall. Easy connectivity to Metro. The 10-million litre Dubai Aquarium tank, located on the Ground Level of The Dubai Mall, is one of the largest suspended aquarium in the world. It houses thousands of aquatic animals, comprising over 140 species. Over 300 Sharks and Rays live in this tank, including the largest collection of Sand Tiger Sharks in the world.
There are numerous ways for visitors to experience the main Aquarium tank, which measures 51 metres in length, 20 metres in width and 11 metres in height.

So many things to see and do in the Dubai Mall so could only spend a short time watching the fish etc. Not realising the size of the Aquarium was a shame but it is on my list for next visit to Dubai. Advice to travellers is to take plenty time if you are doing a stopover in Dubai.

Better than Hong Kong Ocean Park's aquariums — more variety of animals and the place is well kept. Good value of money especially seeing your child having so much fun and amazed. It's just difficult to get a nice photo without other tourists in the frame.
