A visit to the Dubai Mall without seeing the aquarium is unimaginable. At least you can admire the huge front window with the oversized acrylic panel as you pass by, which already gives you an idea that there is more behind it.
The view of the aquarium is free of charge. Those who want to enter the almost 50-metre-long tube have to pay admission. The 270-degree curved glass tunnel is worth a visit. Without getting wet, you can observe the many sea creatures up close. The shark swims by calmly, at what feels like a 30 cm distance from you. It’s safe, breathtaking and you don’t get wet. The Dubai Aquarium houses over 300 sharks, rays and other fish.
A ride on the glass-bottom boat promises deep insights into the underwater world. You need a little more courage to visit the snorkelling cage. For the intrepid, there is the opportunity to dive with sharks.
More than 30 presentations from the underwater world can be seen in the visit to the underwater zoo. Penguins, seals, crocodiles and many other marine animals can be observed up close. A lot of knowledge is imparted about the underwater animal world and the ecology of the seas.
